Book Description

You can cache static assets - more than half the payload needed to respond to many web requests - and even application‑generated web pages (whether partial or complete). And you can use cache clusters and microcaching to increase the caching capability of your web applications while simplifying implementation and reducing operational complexity.

Use Nginx caching and cache clustering to exponentially improve the performance of your website, at the same time reducing hardware requirements, complexity, and costs. This ebook gives you power tools to take your web infrastructure to the next level of performance.
