Read & Write Cache
To further improve the performance of a multi cloud design, Orchesto can be configured to read and write to cache. With caching enabled, Orchesto can greatly speed up access to cloud data and as a consequence, limiting the amount of data fetched from the cloud provider and thereby reducing the costs associated with retrieving it.
The cache is easily configured. Every time a backend is configured in Orchesto the option to enable caching for that backend is given. Caching can also be set up against a virtual region in Orchesto. Once enabled, any new bucket added to a cached region or backend will automatically be cached too. The cache can also be configured to already existing backends and buckets
The cache configuration will define the paths where to cache the data, the number of days data should remain in the cache before expiring, how much of the available space on the cache drive or drives can be used and what backends or regions the caching should be enabled for.
- The cache substantially increases performance for any data operation where the data is in a cloud.
- As data can be served directly from cache, the cost of retrieving data from a cloud could be considerably lowered.
- The cache functionality is enabled per cloud service provider and can be adapted to best fit the application and cloud service used.
