Have you looked at varnish?


>From the FAQ:

Why bother with Varnish - why not use Squid?

Varnish was written from the ground up to be a high performance
caching reverse proxy. Squid is a forward proxy that can be configured
as a reverse proxy. Besides - Squid is rather old and designed like
computer programs were supposed to be designed in 1980. Please see
ArchitectNotes for details.


So what happens with squids elaborate memory management is that it
gets into fights with the kernels elaborate memory management, and
like any civil war, that never gets anything done.

I can also recommend Plone.  I actually use repoze.plone, which was a
breeze to setup for both dev and prod.  In dev I use paster and
mod_wsgi in prod.
