As someone currently delving deep into caching solutions, a thought struck me: Do we always need a dedicated caching service? 🤔
1️⃣ One less service to maintain; cost-effective.
2️⃣ Familiar SQL interface for integration.
Of course, purpose-built solutions have merits, but sometimes using one tool for multiple jobs saves overhead and complexity.
What's your take? I think I will tinker and find out!!
