WinCache – Preliminary tests look REALLY good.

Dear Reader,

UPDATE:
My tests were performed on a Release Candidate of the code. The final code has now been released and Ibuildings has published a benchmark of WinCache 1.0.

Those of you who follow me on twitter know that recently, I tweeted that I had installed Microsoft’s new PHP Opcode Cache, WinCache on a test machine and didn’t see much difference in performance. I then later tweeted that it was probably due to my inexperience in managing II7 and not necessarily a failing of WinCache. In between those two posts, I received 2 messages from people working with Microsoft, the most helpful being from Ruslan Yakushev. If you recognize that name it’s because he writes a lot of good stuff over at iis.net including the getting started guide for WinCache.
