DOB Systems is a leading data processing and business intelligence (BI) provider, focused on delivering accurate, tailored, and timely competitive information to its customers. Its unique and comprehensive BI solutions have set a benchmark in the international travel industry. A single server failure could have resulted in a 10 to a 15-minute outage for customers. While using ASP.NET InProc, the web server load balancing model had to be set to ‘sticky sessions’, forcing the users to always be routed to the same web server.
NCache – Linchpin for Consistency and Reliability
Initially, DOB Systems used Microsoft’s InProc ASP.NET Session State management with its flagship BI web application called MIDAS. This meant session and object cache items were stored locally to whichever of the two web servers that the users had been routed to. DOB Systems was therefore limited to maintaining session and application data objects directly on their web servers.
NCache has contributed to a 65% reduction in application-related errors, while the addition of out-of-process caching has enabled DOB Systems to increase their overall application performance by 30%. Customers reported that the programming and logic to implement NCache was easy and required limited coding.
NC ache increases uptime to 99.9%. Many technical partners, solution integrators and software development companies are building unique solutions using NCache. NC ache’s in-memory caching solution has become a vital component in providing a well-performing and consistent user experience to meet end-user demands. NC ache is a clean and efficient in-memory distributed cache. These improvements lead to a well-performing application suite.
