Abstract

See full text

A system, method, and computer program for caching a plurality of file fragments to improve file transfer performance, comprising the steps of exposing at least one file fragment of a computer file as a primary object to an application; caching said at least one file fragment at a plurality of points in a network system, wherein said at least one file fragment remains unchanged; and managing said at least one non-changing file fragment throughout said network system at a plurality of cache points and appropriate means and computer-readable instructions.
