Cross server comm. in a farm?

Does Orchard provide any API's for communicating with other servers in a farm? I have some custom data caching and I was thinking to have a way to invalidate the cache when the data changes. For example, someone enters a new product in the dashboard. The server that handles that HTTP request to create the new product pings the other servers in the farm, telling them to invalidate their caches. 

I know that Piotr mentioned using SignalR for something similar to this, but I wasn't sure what if anything might already exist today to help with this.

There's nothing of the sort at the moment. Yes, Piotr mentioned using SignalR for this, but another option may be a distributed cache system such as Velocity.
