Choosing an Open Source Proxy

Leif previously posted about his talk at Lisa 2012. I hope that everyone who was able to attend enjoyed it and learned something about the open source web proxy ecosystem. For everyone else, here are the slides, which are pretty interesting. If I ever find any video of the talk, I'll post that as well.

Rolling the D2O: Choosing an Open Source HTTP Proxy Server

In a week or so, I'll be presenting a talk at Usenix LISA '12, titled "Rolling the D20: Choosing an Open Source HTTP Proxy Server". The talk is an attempt to educate the audience not only in what technologies are out there, but also how to pick and choose one that's right for their problem. This will obviously include Apache Traffic Server, but of course other prominent proxies such as Varnish, Squid and Nginx will be examined. I'm hoping to see some of you there, and I'd be very interested to learn more about what is good (and bad) with the current state of affairs when it comes to proxies and caches.

Arno Töll is a new Traffic Server committer

We are welcoming another committer to the Traffic Server community today. Arno Töll has been working hard on packaging Traffic Server for Debian. Distribution packaging is very important because it really makes it easier for people to try out a piece of software. Arno's blog post introducing Traffic Server is probably the best article I have seen for new Traffic Server users, http://daemonkeeper.net/735/apache-trafficserver-the-better-web-cache/ .

Today we welcome Bin Chen as a new Apache Traffic Server committer and member of the project management committee.

It's great to have another representative of the excellent Taobao team agree to join us!
