You can purchase Platform Cache space to improve the performance of your application.
Platform Cache is available to customers with Enterprise Edition orgs and above. The following editions come with some default cache space, but often, adding more cache gives even greater performance enhancements.
- Enterprise Edition (10 MB by default)
- Unlimited Edition (30 MB by default)
- Performance Edition (30 MB by default)
To determine how much cache would be beneficial to your applications, you can request trial cache and try it out in your org. Platform Cache can improve performance in the following situations, among many others.
- Orgs with a large amount of Apex customization
- Orgs with large numbers of concurrent users
- Orgs or applications with complex calculations or queries
In addition, ISVs can purchase cache for use with the applications they provide to customers.
Cache space is sold in 10-MB blocks, with an annual subscription. To purchase Platform Cache, contact your Salesforce representative.
