NCache as Spring Data Cache
Developers commonly use Spring in high transaction applications where they cannot compromise on scalability and performance. Its cohesion and loose coupling allow for high traffic in these applications. Although these applications can scale up by adding more servers to their server farm, their databases cannot scale when handling such loads. Therefore, the database becomes a bottleneck and causes scalability problems.
NCache, an extremely fast, in-memory key-value distributed cache, is just the thing to fix this scalability issue. It offloads your database by reducing expensive database trips and providing better performance.
The upsides of using NCache as a Spring Data Caching Module in Spring applications are:
Better Performance: NCache offloads the database by reducing the expensive database trips, improving the application performance by serving data from the in-memory cache store instead of a database.
Application Scalability: NCache allows the application to scale dynamically by adding more servers to the server farm to avoid database bottlenecks.
Also, NCache provides a caching mechanism in which the user can easily cache the database output to bind methods to their Spring application. However, developers must add the required Maven Packages and configurations to the applications. You can start configuring your Spring application as detailed in the Configuring Application for using NCache as Spring’s Caching Provider section.
