Webb++ has been developed with the aim of improving the response time and the reliability of the HTTP service. This prototype system is based on user-transparent geographic replication. The efficiency of the system has been demonstrated on a live Internet experiment on six geographically distributed clients and servers. The results indicate that Web++ reduces the response time on average by 47.8% during peak hours and 25.5% during night hours, when compared to the performance of a single server system. Further, Web++ generated only a small extra message overhead which did not exceed 2%.
