It maybe an idea to reiterate those basic factors we all learnt at college!
Data is primarily sorted in the cache (how many hits provides hit-rate and
so on). If the data is 'frequently' stored and implemented, systems would
then use smart caching. There is however a world of complexities on which
information is repeatedly kept/used!
