Distributed Clustered Cache Alternatives

Synopsis: Need a .Net cache solution in which the cache can be
synchronized across multiple hosts on our server farm.

My company is investigating caching as a means to improve performance,
by reducing the database as a bottleneck. However due to constraints
imposed by our integration with business partners, we need a solution
that does not have a single point of failure. In a nutshell:

So far we have found a few vendors that offer solutions:
GemStone's Gemfire
Alachisoft's NCache
Tangosol's Coherence
ScaleOut's StateServer
Gigaspaces XAP
However we cannot find reliable (i.e. not PR driven) performance
metrics and/or comparisons for these technologies. Does anyone have
experience with any of these products, or know of alternative
products, or means of achieving our goal?

Thank you,
Adigun Palmer

Thanks Pete for the Reply,

However we are currently using memchached, and we are looking to move
away from it because it isnt possible to maintain data coherency
across multiple machines. For instance if a server goes down in mid
process, all the data stored in the memcached instances on that
machine are gone. Also some on our team feels that the performance
speedwise of memcached isnt as good as they would like. Still thank
you very much for taking the time to reply.

Thank you,
