I have one server that provides access to some hundreds of files. All of them are really big (some have more than 10GB). These files won't change and are read only, but I'll need to provide access to them via a WAN.
I want to make the access faster by using a reverse proxy server running near my users. For example:
- User X wants to access something on server A.
- User X access a reverse proxy server on his LAN which causes a cache miss. The file is downloaded to this proxy server.
- The next time user X wants the same file, he doesn't need to go get it in my main server.
I know that this situation is trivial, but I won't have a lot of traffic, my problem is more related to the file sizes themselves. I read something about Squid having problems caching files larger than 2GB. Does Varnish face the same kind of problems?
Thank you for any thoughts on that.
