Caching stores commonly-used information in local memory for quick retrieval, reducing repeated requests to a web server for the same information. Web pages, graphics files, and other objects can be cached, improving performance and reliability. Benefits of caching include:
- Reduced latency when retrieving web content
- Overall reduction in bandwidth and server load
- Automatic identification and replication of site content\
