Managing social content
SuperLumin Networks has introduced its Social Media Cache, which has been designed to handle increasing demand for social media Web applications such as Facebook, YouTube, MySpace and Twitter.
SuperLumin explains that social media Web applications such as Facebook and YouTube use a redirection model for content distribution, which means the same Web objects often originate from a different server with a different URL. Most caches have to store a separate copy derived from each server. The SuperLumin Social Media Cache can determine if an object has already been retrieved from another server and vend it from the existing cache inventory.
The company highlights the following capabilities of Social Media Cache:
- integrates with existing proxies,
- only caches social media requests,
- performs as a reverse proxy,
- identifies social media objects that have already been retrieved,
- minimizes bandwidth consumption,
- relieves network congestion,
- increases user satisfaction, and
- delivers a quick ROI.
The SuperLumin Social Media Cache is available in two versions—campus and corporate.
