Issues Faced with InProc and State Server
The high number of transactions on DentalPlan.com’s website was causing bottlenecks and timeouts on its database. Thus, the poor performance was adversely affecting the consumer experience. The website could not handle the amount of traffic coming in when sessions were based on our earlier SQL Server. The other two options, InProc & StateServer, had scalability issues. Also, SQL Server, being a database stores, its performance is not as fast.
NCache’s Replication Topology Resolves Issues
NCache’s replication topology resulted in increased speed, efficiency, and stability. It provides extremely fast read performance because every server in the cache cluster has an entire copy of the cache. Plus, Site speed is a factor in organic search algorithms, which impacts our web traffic and sales. In short, NCache helps in the overall user experience.
