Providers of dynamic Web applications are currently unable to accommodate heavy usage without significant investment in infrastructure and in-house management capability. This goal is to develop technology to enable a third party to offer scalability as a subscription service with "Per-click" pricing to application providers. This paper has developed a prototype proxy caching system able to scale delivery of dynamic Web content to a large number of users. This paper reports initial positive results obtained from this prototype that point to the feasibility of this goal. It also reports the shortcomings of the current prototype, the chief one being the lack of a scalable method of managing data consistency.
