- or saving a copy of responses to incoming content requests to serve clients that later request the same content - protects backend servers from overload and speeds up content delivery and overall web performance.
"Valve is currently working with our web caching
partner to identify users whose information was served to other users, and will be contacting those affected once they have been identified," Valve said in a (http://store.steampowered.com/news/19852/) statement.
The latter has gained lots of attention in web caching
. Many schemes have been proposed, considering the request frequency, the content size, the content age, etc.
With a charter to build a standardized, industry-endorsed suite of performance and efficiency benchmarks that characterize system-on-chip (SoC) performance for modern cloud and big-data related workloads (scale-out computing), the benchmarks could ultimately lead to the acceleration of a wide variety of real-world applications, including those used in unstructured data stores, web caching
, web serving, elastic search, media streaming, data analytics, distributed cloud storage, and graph analytics.

"DiViNetworks' technological approach is by far more solid and efficient than web caching
," said Stephane BEUVELET, Deputy CEO - GROUP CTO at Telma.
"As this happens, service providers will need intelligent, high capacity Web caching
to support more localized content delivery, resulting in international bandwidth cost savings, improved traffic management, and better quality of experience for end users," she added.
For example, customers who use Blue Coat, which has been providing service providers with caching solutions for the past 15 years and has over 20 patents specific to Web caching
, have significantly cut infrastructure costs and delivered a more responsive Web experience with caching.
The idea behind web caching
is to maintain a highly efficient but small set of retrieved results in a cache, such that the system performance can be notably improved since later user requests can be directly answered from the cache.
In addition to the 9X features listed above, the 9XE appliance offers: true cache technology, which combines web caching
with continual content analysis; delegated administration, enabling access to a subset of the interface for additional administrators; high availability, with supports for active/active or active/passive network architectures; as well as centralised management and reporting.
