While multi layers of nginx cache may help with bandwidth, it
wastes huge amount of storage while caching the same object
on multiple layers.

What I'd suggest instead is setup a load balancer with URI hashing
in front of it, so the cache hit ratio is as high as possible without
multiple layers caching the same object.
