Squid - HTTP reverse proxy optimizes web delivery

  •        5396

Squid is a caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more. It reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. Cached content means data is served locally and users will see this through faster download speeds with frequently-used content.

Varnish - Web Application Accelerator.


Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator also known as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You install it in front of any server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is really, really fast. It typically speeds up delivery with a factor of 300 - 1000x, depending on your architecture.

Cm_Diehard - Advanced full page cache module for Magento supporting multiple caching methods (browser, reverse proxies, app cache) and multiple hole-punching methods (Ajax, ESI and server-side)


This module aims to make it easy to serve up cacheable HTML pages without falling back to fully-dynamic pages as soon as the visitor takes an individualized action like adding a product to their cart. It has several cache backend models to choose from and supports dynamic block replacement via Ajax, ESI (edge-side includes) or non-Ajax Javascript. This hole-punching is only performed as-needed by using a cookie to keep track of which blocks (if any) need to be dynamic. The backends also differ in the way that cache invalidation is handled by using some interesting techniques; some of which allow for real-time cache invalidation even with a caching reverse proxy! The rendering technique allows for users with dynamic blocks to still warm the cache for other users to further increase the cache hit rate.For a sample implementation of Cm_Diehard for Magento CE see Cm_DiehardSample.
