Alachisoft Open Sources NCache Storage Tool for .NET Apps

Another software platform entered the open source fold this week with Alachisoft‘s announcement that NCache is available on GitHub, creating new opportunities for developers working on .NET and Java apps that require high-performance distributed caches and in-memory storage.

NCache, Alachisoft’s flagship product, is designed to provide a highly responsive and scalable cache, particularly for applications that perform large numbers of transactions. The tool “allows the applications to remove performance bottlenecks related to their databases and data storage and linearly scale to handle extreme transaction loads,” according to Alachisoft.

NCache is currently in use in applications within a range of industries ranging from cloud computing and online gaming to financial services and automobiles, the company noted.

Alachisoft hopes its decision to open source NCache will garner more exposure for the tool. “Open source is the wave of the future and NCache has now joined this club,” said Iqbal Khan, technology evangelist at Alachisoft. “As a result, .NET developers finally have unrestricted access to a truly elastic Distributed Cache that fits in nicely with their application’s stack. We are confident that because of this, we’ll see a mushrooming of high-transaction .NET applications.”

NCache is available starting this week under an Apache 2.0 open source license.
