Network traffic has increased tremendously due to the rise in the number of Internet users. This has affected several aspects and characteristics of large scale networks such as reduced network bandwidth, increased latency, and higher response time for users who require large scale web services. This paper proposes a novel design and methodology to address these issues. It does this by optimizing network bandwidth and reduces latency and response time for large scale Web applications. The methodology works by analyzing content in the proxy cache, identifying content aliasing, duplicate suppression and by the creation of the respective soft links. Here, it is necessary to understand the characteristics of the web traffic before one would propose any design to manage it better.
