What is a squid proxy?

A Squid proxy server is a type of caching server used in Linux OS and Unix platforms. A Squid proxy server operates as data storage, and redirects requested information to the closest computer (if the requested server sits further than the Squid proxy server). This makes for faster responses and helps decrease bandwidth usage.
