Retailers, social networking sites and financial management companies are investing time, money and people to continue to build customer relationships.

Key-value stores and caches are similar in that given a specific key they return a value. They are different in that caches do not persist data but, rather, are RAM resident. However, some key-value stores like Aerospike, have the ability to function as a cache and as a result improve performance and reduce latency making them perfect for consumer facing applications.
