CSS & CE Reverse Proxy Caching - Freshness and Content - Help !!!

We have a pair of 11054's and a pair of 570 CE and a pair os SCA's and using them in a RPC configuration in front of a series of static content web servers.

My problem is I want the CE's to server content even when the origin server(s) are down but where the content is cached fresh or not. So of if the cache has the content, serve it no matter what its freshness. I don't want to have a sorry server used unless the content isn't cached at all.

Or can I pre-position content on the same CE and have it server from there. What content types can be prepositioned ? Is someone going to tell me I need a content router now of something ?

Anyone have any bright Ideas ??

Hi Simon,

If you plan to cache and pre-load (replicate) data in the same device, you need to look at new sw for CE (ACNS 4.2). It has possibility to provide both functions of caching and replication for one CE. CSS has a special feature: to upload (based on threshold) "hot" content to CE.

If you are not a big content provider, you do not need a special content router. Content routing is very tricky things. It could be implemented in the different platforms. For example, CSS also could perform content routing functions.
