I have been looking at caching solutions for a number of scenarios lately to speed up enterprise application performance. In the process I ran across the white paper that shows the benefits of caching in a Web Application scenario.
"Grid Dynamics, a Microsoft partner, created three sample applications, designed to be typical use cases for data caching, and ran extensive benchmarking tests to evaluate their performance characteristics. The applications were a blogging engine, demonstrating the most basic features of Velocity caching technology; a simple e-commerce website, demonstrating Velocity’s capabilities for managing session state, and; a market data application, demonstrating Velocity’s event processing capabilities."
