IISpeed Whirlwind Cache

IISpeed Whirlwind is an insanely fast key value cache, loosely based on high performance concepts from both Apache Traffic Server and Varnish.

Whirlwind uses a file backed virtual memory key-value store to implements a simplified Cyclone Cache. Its functionality builds upon operating system features to achieve an optimal weighing between keeping the hot data in RAM and the long tail on disk, taking into account the needs of other processes. The cache will survive server restarts.

Whirlwind is a work in progress, and will be available as a caching backend in IISpeed.
