Choose between two services for the role of a caching proxy.

The project is connected with social networks and the load can increase from 10-20 up to 100 Mbps for 1-2 minutes. While cloud server will start — it will take another couple of minutes.

The challenge is to provide the most efficient performance of the site in this period of time.


Advise that it is better to use for caching: Squid or nginx?


Thank you.

Still as a variant there is Varnish

Much more flexible configuration, a C-like configuration language with inserts in pure C.

Knows how to check the status of backends, on this basis to select the most suitable for query processing, to create a system such as round robin.

Squid as a proxy has more functionality than nginx. In any case, everything really depends on the specifics of caching. If all intermeddle in what he does nginx I would use it. In any case, there is no problem to stick the first squid and to collect statistics on response peaks, and then nginx on the basis of these data to make a decision.
