Configuring the Client Cache

Client caches provide the framework for clients to store, manage, and distribute application data.

A cache is an entry point for access to VMware GemFire®. Through the cache, clients gain access to the VMware GemFire® caching framework for data loading, distribution, and maintenance.

A Cache instance allows your client to set general parameters for communication between a cache and other caches in the distributed system, and to create and access any region in the cache.

Regions are created from Cache instances. Regions provide the entry points to the interfaces for instances of Region and RegionEntry.

For more information specific to your client programming language, see the .NET Client API.
