NCache as Spring Data Cache
Spring is a lightweight dependency injection and aspect-oriented development container and framework for Java. It is used by a lot of developers for creating enterprise level applications.
Spring can be seen in most of the high transaction applications where scalability and performance cannot be compromised. It provides cohesion and loose coupling but this creates high traffic in these applications. Although these applications can scale up by adding more servers to their server farm but their database cannot scale in the same way for handling such loads. Therefore, the database becomes a bottleneck and causes scalability problems. To achieve this scalability, NCache, a distributed cache, provides an integration with Spring applications for ease of the user.
NCache, an extremely fast, in-memory key-value distributed cache has implemented the Spring caching module; making the Spring applications scalable and distributed. It offloads your database by reducing expensive database trips and providing better performance.
The upsides of using NCache as a Spring Data Caching Module in Spring applications are:
Better Performance: NCache offloads the database by reducing the expensive database trips, thus improving the application performance by serving data from in-memory cache store instead of database.
Application Scalability: NCache allows the application to scale dynamically by adding more servers to the application server farm to avoid the database bottlenecks as easily as possible.
Also, NCache provides such a caching mechanism with which the user can easily cache the output of the database bound methods of their Spring Boot/Framework application. The user needs to add their Maven Packages and configurations to their applications accordingly so that NCache can be properly incorporated. You can start configuring your Spring Boot/Framework application with the help of Configuring Application for using NCache as Spring’s Caching Provider section.
