14 June 2011 —FOREST HILL, MD—The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of nearly 150 Open Source projects and initiatives, today announced Apache Traffic Server v3.0.0.
- Caching: improves response time while reducing server load and bandwidth needs by caching and reusing frequently-requested Web pages, images, and Web service calls;
- Proxying: easily add keep-alive, filter or anonymize content requests, or add load balancing by adding a proxy layer;
- Speed: scales well on modern SMP hardware, handling tens of thousands of requests per second;
- Extensibility: APIs allow for customized plug-ins, from modifying headers and content to implementing new protocol handlers;
- Reliability: successfully handles hundreds of terrabytes of data, both as forward and reverse proxies
Availability and Oversight
As with all Apache products, Apache Traffic Server software is released under the Apache License v2.0, and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC) guides the Project’s day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases.
