Appfabric caching RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1226495852 posted

    I was searching for an open source distributed caching mechanism and I found couple of them NCache, AppFabric, Redis. Among them I felt more comfortable with Appfabric as it is widely used and has extensive documentation. But now, I came to know that appfabric will be deprecated in future. The other option what I had in my mind was Redis, but an official version for windows is not yet available and is maintained by MS Opentech as of now. I am not looking out for Azure based caching options. Can some one help me out?

    I've used the windows port of Redis on two really large projects and its worked out well. Another option is Memcached (though I think Redis is superior). With Memcached, I suspect you will have the same question about using the windows port.

    If you are not comfortable with the windows ports of Redis or Memcached and you don't want to use a cloud offering - then you might want to consider NCache.
