NCache Open Source Edition

NCache is an extremely fast and scalable In-Memory Distributed Cache for .NET / .NET Core. NCache Open Source Edition is there to help developers use it without any approvals and purchases. The Open Source version comes with the following benefits:

  • Free of cost (Released Under Apache License, Version 2.0)
  • Use without any SLA or paid support
  • Community based technical support through NCache Google Groups
  • Available for both Windows and Linux. Download or as Docker images

Community Support Forum Only

NCache Enterprise and Professional editions come with paid support and maintenance SLAs (for bug fixing and feature upgrades). NCache Enterprise even comes with 24x7 support.

But, NCache Open Source does not come with any support or maintenance SLA by Alachisoft. Instead, you have to use it on an “as-is” basis. However, there is community-based support available for it at NCache Google Groups. If you post questions at this forum, you’re likely to get a reply from the community. But, there is no SLA by Alachisoft for it.
