Stephen Fry Proof

Stephen Fry Proof

The term “Stephen Fry Proof” is used in Web Development to denote a server which has a cache of it’s website that it serves. This means that if content is dynamically generated by the server, and there is a traffic spike, and the server does not have a cache of the website to serve, the client can get a 500 server error. Instead, if there is a cache of the website in the traffic spike, the server can easily distribute the webpage from the cache without having to process and dynamically create a webpage for each client during a traffic spike. Make sure your web server is Stephen Fry Proof!
