SunSITE@utk Web Caching Bibliography:
This page includes a comprehensive list of publications (and
pointers thereof) related to Web Caching research.
LBNL's Network Research Group:
This group's research interest are mostly in networking
protocols, including Adaptive Web Caching and Scalable Reliable
Multicast, and networking analysis tools and simulators.
OSF Program for Distributed Web Components:
This program is focused on transforming the Web from its current
state as a means for publishing and accessing random information into
a robust, scalable, secure platform.
The Harvest Group Page:
Harvest is an integrated set of tools to gather, extract, organize,
search, cache, and replicate relevant information across the Internet.
The Harvest Cache Project at USC:
The Harvest hierarchical object cache, is an element of the
Harvest Information Discovery and Access System. It offers high
performance proxy-http caching for various Web clients.
Microsoft Scalable Server Project:
The Scalable Servers project explores techniques to build large
servers as arrays of commodity processors, disks, and
interconnects - Scalable Networks and Platforms (SNAP).
WebOS: Software Support for Scalable Internet Services:
WebOS focuses on the infrastructure needed to build a general
purpose distributed computing environment out of the Web. This
involves issues of file system (WebFS), fault-tolerance, and security.
The Shrimp Project at Princeton:
The Shrimp project allows a Scalable, High-Performance, Really
Inexpensive Multi-Processor to be built from highly-integrated,
commodity parts using an innovative model of communication called
"virtual memory mapped communication".
Smart Clients: A Framework For Building Scalable Services:
This work is motivated by the observation that in many cases the
client, rather than the server, is the right place to implement
transparent access to network services for load balancing and
The Inkotomi Research Prototype at Berkeley:
The Inktomi mission is to bring leading-edge parallel computing
technology to the Internet using commodity building blocks that
provide exceptional cost/performance.
The WWW Consortium Page:
The W3C is an industry consortium which seeks to promote standards for the
evolution of the Web and interoperability between WWW products.
Inferno from Lucent Technologies:
Inferno provides a uniform execution environment for applications and
services in large-scale distributed multimedia systems. It comprises
a networked OS, a virtual machine, and a programming environment.
ISI LowLat Research Page:
The LowLat project uses a mechanism emulating a Web proxy cache
for proactive caching using available bandwith, to reduce
DEC WRL Web Research Page:
This project aims to analyze and improve the HyperText Transport
Protocol and some of its implementations.
The Pablo Research Group at UIUC:
This project is conducted closely with NCSA to assess the
implications of the explosive growth of the world wide web on
operating systems, networks, and file systems.
Virginia Tech Traffic Analysis Research Page:
This project aims at making proxy caches more effective through
performance evaluation of different proposed cache designs using
a collection of Web traffic traces.
The RODEO High Speed Networks Project:
This project aims at the design, implementation and evaluation of
transmission control protocols and high performance applications
on high speed networks.
The HORIZON Project
This project aims at the design of scalable WWW servers to
enhance digital library technology for the public to locate,
integrate, move and analyze data via the Internet.
International WWW Conference Committee:
The IW3C2 is an international body of researchers closely
involved in the Web technology and interested in continuing a
series of academic level conferences.
