It's not a cache but if you're looking for help with READ load you could 
setup a read-only copy of the nova database(s) and configure a slave 


Like the oslo.cache usage in nova, that's also on a per-function/query 
basis and it's been awhile since there was a concentrated effort on 
making more queries able to read from the slave connection, but if there 
are more that could be identified as beneficial to use that read-only 
connection then I'm sure patches would be welcome.
