By: Tidal Media Inc Latest Version: 1.0.2

Product Overview

Squid is one of the most used HTTP proxy implementations and can be deployed both in forward and reverse proxy scenarios. Its most distinguishing feature is its extreme flexibility.

One of the distinguishing features of HTTP compared to many other network protocols is that it has had since the start the ability to support proxies. Proxies are intermediaries to the communication flow and can perform many added-value functions to enhance the overall user experience.

The main functions a regular proxy can perform are caching, to save network resources by directly supplying commonly-accessed data to clients, authentication and authorization, logging, company internet policy enforcement (aka content filtering), network resources usage management.

A Reverse Proxy usually sits in front of a web server farm, and optimizes the work of the web servers, by caching and serving frequently-accessed static contents, SpoonFeeding slow clients, and also possibly perform request filtering to enhance the web applications' security. It can also be used as an IPv4-IPv6 (or v6-v4) gateway.

This Squid 3.5 Proxy Server can implement both: regular and reverse scenarios and pre-tested for seamless deployment in AWS Environments. The Image is fully maintained, secured, and ready-to-run right out the box.
