"CACHEBOX has resulted in internet-based lessons that now run smoothly."
Jeff Klancke, Harare International School, Zimbabwe

"If you asked a member of staff when we last had an outage that wasn’t planned, they wouldn’t be able to tell you – whereas this used to be a very common occurrence under the local authority. That reliability of CACHEBOX's service helps drive us towards being more internet-based." Stuart Jones, Outwood Grange Academies Trust, UK
"CACHEBOX boosted network performance and reduced bottlenecks. Loading issues across devices are all but gone."
Chris Zappe, Desert Academy, USA
"Our High School is getting around 35% request hit ratio. It looks very good."
Mariano Marin-Gomez, Director of Technology, Lindbergh Schools District, Missouri
"Since deploying CACHEBOX in our network, we are seeing 25-30% bandwidth savings and the internet is a lot quicker."
Pete Salmond, QE Academy Trust, UK

Easy Scaling with Linked CACHEBOXes

CACHEBOX makes it easy to link multiple CACHEBOXes together, to form local clusters or distributed caching networks. The benefits are:

  • Redundancy – the caching service continues if one CACHEBOX becomes unavailable
  • Performance – caches working together deliver higher hit rates and/or lower latency
  • Scaling capacity – in effect, building a larger cache to handle increasing traffic

A caching network solution can be built up with CACHEBOX using any combination of three kinds of relationship:

Clustering-parent-child Clustering-Siblings clustering-wccp
Parent-Child Links – sharing objects downwards from a cache at a higher level Sibling Links – sharing directly between two caches at the same level in a hierarchy Load balancing by a WCCP enabled switch/router or a load balancer

Larger distributed deployments often use all three elements to build complex CACHEBOX hierarchies across large regions. These could be for a large ISP, a regional education authority or an enterprise sharing controlled content across a branch network.

Many CACHEBOX customers use load balancing with the WCCP protocol to achieve redundancy and scaling in a local cluster – from a single pair in a large high school to large clustered stacks in the network core of a large ISP.
