Scalability and Performance Issues Faced at Risco
With Risco Group’s server site and SaaS business model, the team had to use a great number of web servers to load balance the information and maintain session information between client requests. This resulted in scalability bottlenecks due to the inordinate transactions coming to their database. The scalability factor spanned two issues: There was a need to effectively handle peak customer loads. They also required a mechanism to increase total capacity. The solution adopted at the time, MS SQL server, incurred performance lagging and, hence, cost.
NCache’s Distributed Caching Results in 100% Uptime
Risco Group chose NCache distributed caching to solve its scalability issues. To begin with, it solved the problem of persisting data in a distributed environment without a database. NCache also helped with fast performance because it is an in-memory cache. Furthermore, NCache is virtually linearly scalable. Clustering and replicated cache topology makes redundancy possible, which results in 100 percent uptime for Risco.
