With the increasing size of the Internet, proxy servers have emerged as a feasible way to reduce the overall network load and latency. More recently researchers focused on new ways to combine multiple cooperative proxies into one transparent proxy system to further increase the overall performance gain, but no work so far was really able to propose an ideal trade-off between content dissemination and clustering in a changing environment caching environment. This paper introduces a self-organizing approach to combine multiple autonomous proxies into one transparent proxy system. One of the emerging attributes of a system of self-organizing autonomous proxies is a balance between content clustering and data dissemination. Our experimental results show that such a system outperforms conventional cooperative proxy infrastructures.
