Vertical Caching: Web Caching for Challenged Networks

Vertical Caching: Web Caching for Challenged Networks, Chen, J., Subramanian, L. (2011, October). In Proceedings of the 23rd ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP).

Many network links in developing regions are low-bandwidth or intermittent. In addition to the inherent connection constraints, web browsing over these networks is an extremely painful experience due to inappropriate cache design…To improve web cache performance, we propose a new model of web caching particularly tailored for low-bandwidth and intermittent environments called vertical caching. Vertical caching extends existing caching mechanisms based on URLs to aggregates of cached pages across topics…
