Seven primary problems behind using external caches with a NoSQL database
Modern applications rely on memory architectures that are both extremely fast and globally distributed. The ideal architecture finds a balance between memory (RAM) and storage (SSD) to deliver high performance along with reliability and consistency.
To achieve these goals, many organizations use in-memory caching alongside a NoSQL database. Yet, as this whitepaper shows, caching solutions that are not integral to the database can cause substantial issues.
Are you using or considering an external cache or in-memory database for high-speed operational performance?
Will an embedded cache work better than a hybrid approach?
