.Net Distributed Clustered Cache (AKA Data Grids) Alternatives RRS feed

  • Question

  • Synopsis: Need a .Net cache solution in which the cache can be synchronized across multiple hosts on our server farm.

    My company is investigating caching as a means to improve performance, by reducing the database as a bottleneck. However due to constraints imposed by our integration with business partners, we need a solution that does not have a single point of failure. In a nutshell:

    So far we have found a few vendors that offer solutions:
        GemStone's Gemfire
        Alachisoft's NCache
        Tangosol's Coherence
        ScaleOut's StateServer
        Gigaspaces XAP
    However we cannot find reliable (i.e. not PR driven) performance metrics and/or comparisons for these technologies. Does anyone have experience with any of these products, or know of alternative products, or means of achieving our goal?

    Thank you,
    Adigun Palmer

  • Hi,

    Just curious what did you end up using.  Seems like we are in the same dilemma and currently evaluating various distrbuted caching solutions for .NET.
