SharedCache Version: - Release Notes

SharedCache is a high-performance, distributed caching system. Although application-neutral, it's commonly used to speed up dynamic applications by alleviating database load. SharedCache runs as a distributed windows service on every web and / or application server farm to cache data objects in memory out of process. Your stored objects can be accessed from any of your servers in your farm.

tips & tricks:

if you install the server on the same server we suggest to use different locations for the log files. eg:

Server: h:\app_logs\server\

Client: j:\app_logs\client\

Consider about firewall configurations: if you have communication problems check your firewall file: C:\WINDOWS\pfirewall.log
