Best way to cache data

Best way to cache data

I am in the process of figuring out a cache strategy for our current setup, currently have multiple web servers and wanted to know what is the best way to cache data in this environment. I have done research about MemCache and the native asp.net caching but wanted to get some feedback first. Should I go with a Linux box if I use MemCache or a win32 port of MemCache.

Dare Obasanjo has a pretty good blog post about this topic. You really need to assess what it is you're caching, why you're caching it and what your needs are before you can make a decision on a caching strategy.

Another open source choice other than memcached probably worth looking into is Shared Cache. I haven't played with it. But it says to have c# native implementation.
