I choose between two services for the role of a caching proxy.
The project is associated with social networks and the load can increase from 10-20 to 100 Mbit / s in 1-2 minutes. While cloud servers are starting, it will take another couple of minutes.
The goal is to ensure the most effective speed of the site in this period of time.
Advise what is better to use for caching: Squid or nginx?
Much more flexible setup, C-like configuration language with inserts on pure C.
Able to check the state of the backends, based on this, select the appropriate query processing, create a system of type round robin from them.
