What is a Cache and how Does the Cache Work?

А cache is a storage location used to temporarily store data used by servers, apps, and browsers to speed load times. Cache stores the contents like html pages, images, JavaScript, CSS etc. Browsers will check these locations before requesting the resource from the server, and if it’s found, it will be loaded from the cache instead of having it downloaded, which would be significantly slower.

Cache does not send the response with requests.

In Cache, content of the website is saved only on browser.

Caching is carefully planned for optimal selection of both data to cache and the length of time the data should be retained. When the data changes frequently, we limit how long the data is retained in cache. Our approach to caching depends on the type of cache, the nature of the data and the applications accessing the data.

Cache type and purposes

Unique Community Services uses several types of caches  to operate the website:

Web Browser Cache

This storage is done in the browser. All browsers have a local storage that they use to retrieve previously accessed resources. This cache is private since stored resources are not shared. Browsers cache data such as entire web pages to speed up the loading times.

Proxy Cache

This storage, also called “intermediate caching,” is done between the client and the origin server on the proxy server. Proxy cache is a shared cache used by multiple clients and usually maintained by providers. Proxy servers allow data to be shared with more users and use cache to avoid retrieving data from the database every time it’s requested.

Server Cache

A server cache is similar to a browser cache, only that it keeps data server-side instead of saving it locally. It’s often used to save database queries to avoid running memory and CPU-intensive tasks for the popular queries. Server cached data includes dynamically created web pages, database queries API responses and more.

CDN caching

Content delivery networks (CDNs) store cached data in multiple proxy servers that are geographically distributed to serve content to users in closer proximity to where they reside, helping to improve a web application’s performance.

Virtual memory caching

A computer’s memory management unit (MMU) often includes a Translation Lookup Buffer (TLB) to cache recent translations between virtual and physical addresses.
