The Benefits of Microcaching with NGINX

NGINX and NGINX Plus are commonly used as web content caches, ranging from individual websites to some of the largest content delivery networks (CDNs) in the world, such as MaxCDN and CloudFlare.

Microcaching is an effective method for accelerating the delivery of dynamic, non-personalized content by caching it for very short periods of time. In this article, we’ll see how to accelerate a WordPress-based application by up to 400x using the microcaching technique.

The benefits of caching are two-fold: caching improves web performance by delivering content more quickly, and it reduces the load on the origin servers. The effectiveness of caching depends on the cacheability of the content. For how long can we store the content, how do we check for updates, and how many users can we send the same cached content to?
