SpiderCache Inc.s namesake caching engine, using an IIS or Apache Web server, serves up cached pages that contain dynamic content. IT managers aiming for optimal Web performance should consider caching products such as SpiderCache.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // For best results, SpiderCache requires that a Web page recoding and caching policy be in place. The new configuration wizard should ease policy setup, and IT managers should see performance improvements as soon as the product is fully implemented.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // SpiderCache should continuously improve Web site performance by ensuring that dynamically generated content remains fresh and close to the end user. If the company releases performance monitoring tools to help fine-tune Web site performance, SpiderCache should be even more effective over time.

Substantial performance increase when serving dynamically created content; good cross-platform support; handy configuration wizard.

Lacks performance reports that track served-page statistics.
