NCache Cloud is available in Azure and AWS Marketplaces as a Service (SaaS). This means you can now obtain it instantaneously with a few mouse clicks. You can also seamlessly scale your cache deployment without any down time.
You can purchase NCache Cloud on Pay as You Go basis with hourly prices or on 1-Year Reserved basis with discounted prices. And, you purchase NCache Cloud directly from the Azure / AWS marketplace and not from Alachisoft. Both NCache Enterprise and Professional editions are available as NCache Cloud.
Here are some highlights of NCache Cloud from Azure / AWS marketplaces.
You must purchase NCache Cloud directly from Azure or AWS marketplace by selecting NCache Enterprise Cloud or NCache Professional Cloud offering. Once you start the purchase process and select an offering, you’re taken to NCache Cloud Portal at Alachisoft website. This portal has all the details of what you need to purchase in terms of the number of NCache Cloud licenses (client licenses, server licenses, or server-only licenses), 24x7 support, Pay as You Go vs 1 Year Reservation, and more.
Once you complete your purchase details at NCache Cloud Portal, your purchase is final and Azure / AWS cloud provider starts billing you for it. At this time, NCache Cloud Portal allows you to automatically deploy cache servers inside your own cloud subscription.
You can choose this option without any commitment. You’re charged on hourly basis but billed on monthly basis and you can cancel anytime. You can purchase NCache Cloud server licenses and client licenses, and also server-only licenses.
You can choose this option to purchase NCache Cloud as 1-Year Reserved for your baseline configuration at a discounted price. And then you can also add more licenses later to this 1-Year Reserved either on a pro-rated monthly basis at the same discounted price or on Pay as You Go hourly basis at regular price.
Here is how you do it:
When you purchase NCache Cloud for Azure / AWS, the actual cache servers are hosted inside your own cloud subscription and VNET. This provides you two benefits as mentioned below:
When you purchase NCache Cloud, you can choose to deploy the cache servers directly from NCache Cloud Portal in a seamless manner. NCache Cloud Portal uses Azure / AWS authentication for your cloud subscription provided by you to access your cloud subscription. It then provisions NCache Cloud cache servers from the cloud marketplace on your behalf based on your VM preferences. It then automatically deploys these cache servers to your cloud environment and VNET based on your selection.
After this, NCache Cloud Portal activates all NCache Cloud servers against licenses you’ve purchased (1-Year Reserved or Pay as You Go). And, if you’ve purchased client-server licenses, then it also activates NCache Cloud client licenses through the same cache servers in each environment that you’ve specified; your cache clients are not directly activated and instead only the cache servers are activated for that many clients. For server-only licenses, the process is even simpler because the clients are free and therefore do not need any activation. As a result, you don’t have to do anything yourself.
Please note that the authentication information you’ve provided to NCache Cloud Portal is in the form of a token that expires shortly afterwards. Therefore, your environment is still totally secure and inaccessible to NCache Clout Portal later.
If your environment is highly secure and you don’t want to give any authentication information to NCache Cloud Portal for automatic deployment (even though the authentication token expires right after deployment is done), then you can do this activation manually after purchasing the licenses.
After you’ve purchased NCache Cloud at NCache Cloud Portal, you’re provided a subscription license key (1-Year Reserved or Pay as You Go). Simply go to your Azure / AWS cloud subscription, provision preconfigured NCache VMs in your cloud marketplace yourself, and activate cache servers by using the subscription license key. You can do this activation in two ways:
In Azure / AWS, NCache Enterprise provides a powerful WAN Replication feature that allows you to replicate the cache across multiple zones within a region or even across multiple regions. You create clustered caches in each zone/region and then use NCache Bridge Topology for WAN Replication across all of them. You can replicate clustered caches across the WAN in active-passive, active-active, and 3+ active-active manner.

NCache allows you to use a fully working software free of cost for a limited period of time for evaluation purpose. For evaluation of NCache in Azure / AWS, you only pay for the cache server VMs and not NCache licenses.
In each option below, you can do 60-day evaluation and later extend it 30 days at a time for a total of 180 days.
During the Evaluation and Trial Period, NCache is fully functional and also free. And, you’re also able to get free technical support from our world-class Technical Support team.
NCache Cloud has a server portion and a client portion. The server portion is called NCache Cloud that you purchase/obtain from Azure & AWS marketplaces. And, client portion is something you can embed inside your application. You can obtain NCache Client from the following sources:
You can bundle the NCache Client libraries inside your .NET / .NET Core application and deploy to Azure and AWS. However, please note that bundled NCache Client libraries only provide an InProc Client Cache feature. OutProc Client Cache is only possible if you install NCache Client through Windows Installer (.msi file).
