Distributed Caching: Essential Lessons

Subject:  In this presentation, we will cover application development considerations for maximum scalable performance and reliability in clustered .NET environments. This presentation focuses on improving scalability and scalable performance of applications through the use of clustered caching and data grids to reliably share live data among clustered application nodes, providing transparent fail-over as a key element of uninterrupted operation and reduced load on the database tier as a key element of scalability. We will also discuss how you can simply improve performance and scalability of the existing ASP.NET applications by storing session state in a data grid.

The presentation will focus on:

  • Caching Topologies: the limitations, trade-offs and benefits
  • Cache aside, read/write through and write behind architectures, where and when to use
  • Use cases and a topology quiz
  • Scaling ASP.NET web applications
  • The 12 essential lessons
