Enhancing Scalability with Distributed Object Caching

Teams take various approaches when scaling applications usually doing things like increasing the number of tiers in the application(s) and adding more hardware to each tier. Both of these approaches tend to create operational issues as the system size increases. Some systems have large amounts of user data that can create their own problems when trying to provide fault tolerance and when the number of users combined with the user data is to large to fit in server memory. Persisting data to a relational store often has two much overhead in these situations. Teams can scale up their applications and provide additional stability through the use of commercially available distributed object caches. (Originally 7/2010)
