San Ramon, California - January 20th, 2006 - AlachiSoft is pleased to announce the immediate availability of NCache™ 2.0. NCache is a high performance in-memory object caching solution for mission critical .NET applications with real-time data access needs. NCache not only lets you cache read-only data but also complex transactional data with relationships. As a result, your application can cache most of its data and dramatically improve performance.
The latest features in version 2.0 include support for Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework, new SessionState Edition providing clustering for ASP.NET Sessions, support for TCP based clusters, cache synchronization with SQL Server 2005/2000, Oracle, DB2, and other leading databases, and much more.
"NCache adds the much needed performance boost to .NET through intelligent object caching for single-server or server-farm configurations. NCache provides a rich set of caching and clustering features that allow .NET developers to configure the cache according to the specific needs. NCache is designed to handle really high-end .NET applications with performance and scalability being a strong emphasis.", said Iqbal Khan, Director Sales & Marketing at AlachiSoft.
NCache provides an easy to use graphical tool for configuring and monitoring clustered caches from a single computer. Performance monitoring is also built into this tool that let's customers immediately see how their application is performing and how each server in the server-farm is contributing toward this performance.
NCache also provides a rich set of clustering topologies to let customers meet their specific needs. This includes Replicated Cache, Partitioned Cache, and Client Cache topologies. Replicated Cache is intended for the most read-intensive applications and keeps copy of the entire cache on each node on the cluster. On the other hand, Partitioned Cache divides up the cache into n equal sized partitions and keeps each partition on each node in the cluster. Partitioned Cache is a little slower than Replicated Cache for small clusters but performs much faster for larger clusters and where reads are not as many as replicated configurations. Finally, Client Cache is intended to allow some of the nodes in the cluster to be either data-less of keep a very small cache on top of the cache.
NCache ensures that all the data in the cache is synchronized always throughout the cluster.
NCache lets customers give a serious boost to their application performance. NCache also improves reliability and availability of the application by using a multi-cast protocol for communication within the cluster so there is no single point of failure.
NCache has a FREE 60-day evaluation version available on AlachiSoft website. Pricing for the Local Edition (intended for single server configurations) information is also available there. For Enterprise and SessionState editions, customers are required to contact AlachiSoft for a customized quote.
