ABSTRACT:
Web caching is a crucial technology in Internet because it represents an effective means for reducing bandwidth demands, improving web server availability and reducing network latencies. However, Web cache cluster, which is a potent solution to enhance web cache system’s capability, still, has limited capacity and cannot handle tremendous high workload. Maximizing resource utilization and system capability is a very important problem in Web cache cluster. This problem cannot be solved efficiently by merely using load balancing strategies. Thus, along with the advent of cloud computing, we can use cloud based proxies to achieve outstanding performance and higher resource efficiency, compared to traditional Web proxy cache clusters. In this paper, we propose an architecture for cloud based Web proxy cache cluster (CBWPCC) and test the effectiveness of the proposed architecture, compared with traditional one in term of response time ,resource utilization using CloudSim tool.
