Context.Items vs Context.Cache

There doesn't seem to be much doc on Items vs Cache in HttpContext.

Basically I want to instantiate a class at web application level so
that all web pages can have access to it. The object would have the
life span of the application itself.

Can anyone point me in right direction regarding Items vs Cache?

The Context.Items should be seen as shortlived data store (cache), that
exists for a single http request. This means it is private to the http

The Context.Cache is a shared data store, that allows you to e.g.
instantiate your class at application level, add it to the cache (with
expiration settings if required), and share the instance between all http

If this doesn't answer your question, please let me know.
