Linux comes with CacheFS which is developed by David Howells. The Linux CacheFS currently is designed to operate on Andrew File System and Network File System. You need to install a package called cachefilesd which is a CacheFiles userspace management daemon. The cachefilesd daemon manages the caching files and directory that are used by network filesystems such a AFS and NFS to do persistent caching to the local disk.
