Title: xCache: Rethinking Edge Caching for Developing Regions (Ali Raza)
End-users in emerging markets experience poor web performance due to a  
combination of three factors: high server response time, limited edge  
bandwidth and the complexity of web pages.  The absence of cloud  
infrastructure in developing regions and the limited bandwidth experienced  
by edge nodes constrain the effectiveness of conventional caching solutions  
for these contexts. In this talk, I will describes the design,  
implementation and deployment of xCache, a cloud-managed Internet caching  
architecture that aims to proactively profile popular web pages and  
maintain the liveness of popular content at software defined edge caches to  
enhance the cache hit rate with minimal bandwidth overhead. Our preliminary  
real-world deployment across university campuses in three developing  
regions demonstrates its potential compared to conventional caching by  
improving cache hit rates by about 15%. Our evaluations of xCache have also  
shown that it can be applied in conjunction with other web optimizations  
solutions like Shandian, and can improve page load times by more than 50%.
