The potential of HTTP proxy caches for LHC computing

Project name

The potential of HTTP proxy caches for LHC computing

Project description

Managing storage is one of the major contributors to operational costs on the LHC’s grid infrastructure (WLCG). The task is to design and prototype an HTTP proxy cache system, built using standard components, intended to allow pure unmanaged cache storage at a grid site or to accelerate data access in cloud environments.This project could reduce the costs of running the LHC’s grid infrastructure by removing storage management overheads at smaller sites and by improving the efficiency of cloud computing resources.
