024 * Simple memory-only based {@link CacheManager CacheManager} implementation usable in production
025 * environments.  It will not cause memory leaks as it produces {@link Cache Cache}s backed by
026 * {@link SoftHashMap SoftHashMap}s which auto-size themselves based on the runtime environment's memory
027 * limitations and garbage collection behavior.
028 * <p/>
029 * While the {@code Cache} instances created are thread-safe, they do not offer any enterprise-level features such as
030 * cache coherency, optimistic locking, failover or other similar features.  For more enterprise features, consider
031 * using a different {@code CacheManager} implementation backed by an enterprise-grade caching product (EhCache,
032 * TerraCotta, Coherence, GigaSpaces, etc, etc).
