NCache Software is available in Azure and AWS marketplaces as a preconfigured VM (Software). For all other cloud platforms, simply download, install, and use NCache on a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) basis. NCache works perfectly fine in any cloud. Click below to learn more about each cloud option.
In both Azure and AWS marketplaces, NCache Enterprise, NCache Professional, and NCache Open Source “Software” are all available as pre-configured Virtual Machine (VM). These VMs are preconfigured with NCache and make your process of setting up NCache totally seamless. This allows you to seamlessly use NCache in a BYOL licensing model or totally free in case of NCache Open Source.
Annual subscription licenses. Cloud VM cost not included.
Below are the links to pre-configured NCache VMs in these clouds:
BYOL means that you pay Azure and AWS for the underlying VM and pay Alachisoft for NCache software licenses as annual subscriptions basis (or perpetual licenses if you’ve already purchased them).
BYOL also means that you can take these NCache licenses from one cloud platform to another or transfer them between cloud and on-premises.
You may not want to use the pre-configured NCache VMs from Azure / AWS marketplace. This could be because you want to install NCache directly on your application server VMs. Or, you may be using another cloud platform where a preconfigured NCache VM doesn’t exist in its marketplace.
In these cases, you can download NCache from our website and install on the VM of your choice in the cloud. After installation, simply use the license key you’ve purchased directly from Alachisoft to activate NCache just like you would do in an on-premises situation.
This is true for NCache Enterprise, NCache Professional, and NCache Open Source editions.
In Azure / AWS and in other clouds, NCache allows you to use a fully working software free of cost for a limited period of time for eval purposes. This is true for NCache Enterprise and NCache Professional both. You only pay for the VMs and not NCache licenses during this period.
In each option below, you can do an evaluation for 60 days and later extend it 30 days at a time by contacting us.
During the Eval Period, NCache is fully functional and also free. And, you’re also able to get technical support from our world-class Technical Support team.
NCache has a server portion and a client portion. The server portion is what you purchase/obtain from Azure & AWS marketplaces or setup as described above. And, client portion is something you can embed inside your application. You can obtain NCache Client from the following sources:
You can bundle NCache Client libraries inside your .NET / .NET Core application. You can also bundle NCache Client Jar files inside your Java applications. However, please note that these options only provide you an InProc Client Cache and not OutProc. The latter is only possible by installing a Remote Client (see above).
