Caching is a key technology to improving application performance and scale by taking the load off your database and moving into distributed memory, frequently used data that is very close to the application components accessing it. This session focuses on AppFabric Caching technology from Microsoft and provides a technical view of how developers can take advantage of it. The AppFabric Cache has both a cloud service on Windows Azure AppFabric as well as an on-premise version that is part of Windows Server AppFabric - we examine the key differences between the two. Finally, the session covers the key scenarios that the Cache is being used in and the value gained.
