The HyperCache feature is designed to enforce caching on the proxy in order to learn to the proxy that CDN contents are the same source.
By default the proxy cache objects using the URL.
Many websites or update websites such as Apple, IBM, microsoft use CDN servers in load-balance mode.
an object usually located on http://server/img/picture.png will be served by http://cdn1.server/img/picture.png, http://cdn2.server/img/picture.png, http://cdn3.server/img/picture.png…
In a standard way, the proxy will not cache the picture.png because the url change everytime.
The HyperCache is able to learn to the proxy that cdnxxx.server is the same url
