NCache vs Redis: What are the differences?

Developers describe NCache as "Distributed In-Memory Datastore". It is an extremely fast and scalable distributed cache for .NET. It helps high traffic server applications remove data storage bottlenecks by caching application and linearly scale to handle extreme transaction loads without slowing down. On the other hand, Redis is detailed as "An in-memory database that persists on disk". Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.

NCache and Redis belong to "In-Memory Databases" category of the tech stack.

Redis is an open source tool with 37.4K GitHub stars and 14.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Redis's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to NCache and Redis?
      Memcached
      Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data (strings, objects) from results of database calls, API calls, or page rendering.
      Hazelcast
      With its various distributed data structures, distributed caching capabilities, elastic nature, memcache support, integration with Spring and Hibernate and more importantly with so many happy users, Hazelcast is feature-rich, enterprise-ready and developer-friendly in-memory data grid solution.
      Couchbase
      Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.
      MongoDB
      MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
      Aerospike
      Aerospike is an open-source, modern database built from the ground up to push the limits of flash storage, processors and networks. It was designed to operate with predictable low latency at high throughput with uncompromising reliability – both high availability and ACID guarantees.
