Cache Connections

Caches are used to store data returned from a Connector to improve API call performance. Currently, Xapix supports two types of cache connections:

Type

Description

Redis

Open source in-memory data structure store used as a database, cache and message broker. For more information, see here.

Memcached

Open source distributed memory object caching system that takes unused memory in a system and makes it accessible to areas in need of memory. For more information, see here.

After creating a cache connection, you can share this resource within an organization.
