Caching  with Reverse Proxy

Reverse proxy Cache stores copies of data or files in a temporary storage location so they can be accessed faster. It temporarily saves data for applications, servers, and web browsers, which ensures users need not download information every time they access a website or application.

What is Caching?

The feature of caching refers to the storage of files from the user’s servers onto the reverse proxy server for which the requests are received frequently. A reverse proxy server sits right in front of the user’s servers and intercepts all requests, thus shielding the user’s servers from getting exposed over the internet. Reverse proxy server keeps a track of the requests that are being made to web pages hosted on specific servers in the backend. Knowing what kind of web pages receive requests frequently from clients all over the world, the reverse proxy server stores the content of those web pages, which is often called cache data. If a request is being made for the same web page, the reverse proxy server serves the page itself without even approaching the server in the backend, thus reducing the load on the backend server and aids in speeding up the request-response cycle. This feature can be implemented for Network caching and server caching. Network caching and ServerCaching can be used for features like caching the static images, other multimedia contents, some javascript scripts and many more.

How does Caching Works?

Let us consider a scenario where a specific web servers frequently receives requests from a particular user with same queries:

In this way, by utilizing the feature of caching, the load on the backend servers is reduced by the reverse proxy server, along with increasing the speed of the request-response cycle. The user can specify the amount of time for which the cached content will be valid. After that period, the cached content will be updated.
