Why caching and in-memory data grid is no longer an afterthought


Evolution of Caching Technologies In an early stage, caching started with simply putting data into memory (mostly as local cache) in the same processing node (usually an application server). Gradually it evolved with externalizing the cache as a separate process and eventually re-engineered towards distributed computing architecture. In the current landscape, most of the caching system architecture uses in-memory data grid technology, which is essentially a part of in-memory computing…
