Concept of Cashing in on the Cache in the Cloud

Over the past decades, caching has become the key technology used for bridging the performance gap across memory hierarchies via temporal or spatial localities; in particular, the effect is prominent in disk storage systems. Applications that involve heavy I/O activities, which are common in the cloud, probably benefit the most from caching. The use of local volatile memory as cache might be a natural alternative, but many well known restrictions, such as capacity and the utilization of host machines, hinder its effective use.
