A couple people asked about this earlier on the mailing list, so I
thought I'd post here, and let everyone know that TileCache, the
MetaCarta Labs BSD licensed WMS-C server implementation, is now
available from http://labs.metacarta.com/wms-c/#TileCache .
TileCache is a Python-based WMS/TMS server, which supports pluggable
caching mechanisms and rendering backends. At its simplest, it requires
only write access to a disk, the ability to run Python CGI scripts, and
a WMS you want to be cached. With that, you can create your own local
disk-based cache of any WMS server, and use the result in any WMS-C
supporting client, like OpenLayers, or any TMS supporting client, like
OpenLayers and worldKit.
When running under mod_python, TileCache can handle hundreds of cache
requests per second.

OpenLayers is, by default, a client for TileCache, and an
OpenLayers-based demonstration of the tilecache server is included in
