ASP.NET web applications, .NET web services applications, and other .NET server applications need to handle extreme transaction loads without slowing down. And, although their application tier scales linearly, the data storage and database tier does not scale and therefore becomes a bottleneck. As a result, the entire application cannot scale. Originally, simple in-memory distributed key-value…

Today, web applications are increasingly using distributed cache for boosting performance and scalability by caching frequently used data so as to reduce expensive database trips. Distributed cache spans and synchronizes over multiple cache servers to let you scale in a linear fashion. A good distributed cache usually has a Cache Dependency feature to let you…

Distributed caching is becoming really popular among developers of high transaction applications because it improves your application’s performance and scalability. And, this popularity means that developers are caching more and more data in it which they also want to be able to search just like they are able to search relational databases. But, one major…

Distributed Caching has become a popular way of improving .NET application performance and scalability. That is why developers are caching more and more data in distributed cache. However along with this come a few challenges. One important challenge is to ensure that data in the cache is always synchronized with the database. This is because…

Distributed cache is becoming very popular because it is a powerful way to boost your application performance and scalability and handle extreme transaction load without slowing down. Both .NET and Java applications are using it more and more each day. But, one challenge people face with distributed cache is how to map and store relational…
