How Caching Services can Improve Web Performance and Responsiveness

An important service offered by content delivery networks is caching. Caching is often associated with acceleration because it ultimately improves the performance of websites. Today we would just like to introduce the topic of caching and explain why it’s important for businesses.

This article provided by Tech Target includes an informative definition of caching, which is provided below:

“A cache is a temporary storage area. For example, the files you automatically request by looking at a Web page are stored on your hard disk in a cache subdirectory under the directory for your browser. When you return to a page you’ve recently looked at, the browser can get those files from the cache rather than the original server, saving you time and saving the network the burden of additional traffic.”

Caching Services by MedianovaBasically, caching removes the load from servers to improve web performance. It’s especially important for business, corporations, or organizations that have increasing web traffic. Web traffic can only increase for so long before businesses need to start caching.

Caching ultimately improves web performance without having to purchase new hardware. The other alternative to caching is to add hardware when responsiveness goes down. This practice, however, is unsustainable because of its cost. Caching is a cheaper and more simple way to keep responsiveness high.

With a content delivery network, caching is easy and businesses don’t have to worry about the technical aspects. At Medianova, we first install Medianova Caching cluster to your company’s network. We then configure this platform to automatically cache the necessary files. Meanwhile, the cache nodes are based on I/O acceleration cards and Medianova’s proprietary software featuring 10Gbps ethernet ports.

After this initial setup, businesses can continue with their practices as normal. The caching is already configured and businesses will start to save network resources.
