Database cache can be a poor choice to handle Internet-scale transcational workloads. In addition to availability and reliability issues, the hardware and operational costs cannot be sustained at scale.
Signs of Serious Cache Trouble
Aerospike can help if you are experiencing any of the following.
Your Nodes Are Growing Uncontrollably
Is growth in data volume or access patterns driving the need for enormous clusters (30 nodes or more)? Is your budget for memory and servers frequently going above and beyond your projections?
Repopulating Your Cache Takes Hours or Even Days
Are you frequently holding new nodes or servers out of production while the cache gets re-populated? Is your data out of date by the time repopulation is complete?
You Have an Entire Team Dedicated to Cache Management
While very interesting on a technical level, scaling issues are hardly the core of your business. Are you allocating more time and human capital towards fixing scaling issues than you would like?
Cache Stampedes Happen Often
Does your database architecture experience frequent cache stampedes? Have you tried different algorithms to solve this problem, with no success?
Your Data Volume Is Large Enough that You Need Clustering
Do you have the resources to rearchitect your database system for clustering? Are you concerned that the new architecture will not be able to handle further growth?
