Benchmark showcases Microsoft’s Project Code-named “Velocity” ability to Scale Web Application
Grid Dynamics, a Microsoft partner, created three sample applications, designed to be typical use cases for data caching, and ran extensive benchmarking tests to evaluate their performance characteristics. The applications were a blogging engine, demonstrating the most basic features of Velocity caching technology; a simple e-commerce website, demonstrating Velocity’s capabilities for managing session state, and; a market data application, demonstrating Velocity’s event processing capabilities. Building these applications with the Velocity project’s in-memory application cache platform achieved superior, linear scalability when compared to the same applications built without Velocity.
