The current Web cache infrastructure, though it has a number of performance benefits, does not address many of the publishers' requirements. The authors argue that web caches should be enhanced to address publishers' needs. For example, caches will need to log client accesses, run scripts to dynamically produce content, and give publishers QoS guarantees. In this paper, they propose Gemini, a publisher centric web caching infrastructure. Central to their design is the architectural assumption that the global web cache infrastructure will be heterogeneous, like the Internet itself - caches will belong to many different administrative domains and have different functionalities.
