I decided to take a look and play with MS "Velocity" Distributed Caching. “Velocity” is a distributed in-memory application cache platform for developing scalable, available, and high-performance applications. “Velocity” fuses memory across multiple computers to give a single unified cache view to applications. Applications can store any serializable CLR object without worrying about where the object gets stored.

Well I download the latest version CTP2 install it on 2 computers and it works very nice. Velocity supports the common cache types: partitioned cache, replicated cache and local cache. Depending on the type of data, applications can choose the appropriate type of cache.

On this version there are: Performance improvements, PowerShell integration, Additional Configuration Store options and native 64 bit support. Of course there is the ASP.NET Session State Provider that is very cool feature.

    Hi Rotem,

    Although now that Velocity CTP-3 has been released which much more features, it still needs industry acknowledgment to go into production. While Alachisoft's NCache is a much more mature and tested .NET <a href="">Distributed Cache</a> available in the market and with their Free Distributed Cache called NCache Express they are sure to be way ahead of Velocity for a long time to come.
