I do not know ncache functionality, but can say about http cache:

*) it allows to cache proxied and FastCGI responses with header;
*) the cached responses may depend on Cookies, IPs, etc.;
*) caches are special directory hierarchies, you may use several caches in
   a server;
*) cache manager process deletes inactive cache entries and manages
   cache size.
