In recent weeks we have exceeded 40,000,000 requests and shipped over 400GBytes per day and these figures are likely to increase in the coming months. Over 150 institutions currently use the service and this number too is set to increase as Colleges of Further Education and other organisations begin to use us. We are expanding the service to meet this growth in demand.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue22/web-cache" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue22 tooled up george neisser jisc ukoln university of bath cache copyright data further education linux operating system software ulcc url Tue, 21 Dec 1999 00:00:00 +0000 editor 668 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Caching In? http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue19/cache <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue19/cache#author1">George Neisser</a> describes the National JANET Web Caching Service.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The UK JANET Web Caching Service, managed jointly by the Universities of Manchester and Loughborough, provides an efficient, state-of-the-art, caching facility for the UK Academic and Research community. Its primary objectives are to reduce unnecessary duplication of network traffic between the community and the Web, and to minimise the time taken to download Web pages from remote sites. The former results in a more cost-effective use of limited and expensive bandwidth; whilst the latter facilitates a more productive use of the Web.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue19/cache" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue19 regular column george neisser university of manchester cache copyright data infrastructure linux research software url Fri, 19 Mar 1999 00:00:00 +0000 editor 586 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
