Cacheonix Distributed Strictly-Consistent Key-Value Store
Cacheonix is an open source project that provides a strictly-consistent distributed key-value store written in Java. The main use cases include a distributed Java cache, a cloud-ready distributed Hibernate cache, a fast local JVM cache, a servlet HTTP request-response cache, and a large-scale, distributed, strictly-consistent key-value store.
Cacheonix supports clusters up to 1024 nodes.
Cacheonix's Core project contains the caching functionality.
Java Web cache
Cacheonix 2.2.2 adds support for caching requests using a servlet filter. Key features include:
- Caching web requests
- Client-side cache control headers
- Automatic gzip compression of responses
Please visit Cacheonix wiki section Cacheonix Java web cache for detailed information or concepts, configuration and use.
Cacheonix local cache improves application performance and vertical scalability by servicing a high-demand data from memory and by avoiding running into bottlenecks in the database and business tiers.
Strictly-consistent Distributed Cache
One of the most important Cacheonix features is strict data consistency in a cluster. Cacheonix guarantees that once an update to a key happened, it's impossible to get an old value for that key. This makes Cacheonix suitable for mission critical applications such as e-commerce and banking. Also, Cacheonix allows developing a highly-performant applications using Hibernate that have to run in a cluster.
