I've been using mapcache for years and it is great. Easy to setup, never 
had any maintenance issues related to it, it is fast and does not 
consume a lot of resources. It supports a lot of tile caches and 
physical tile cache structures, lots of tile protocols, but requires WMS 
for source data. If you are using apache I highly recommend it.
