Migrate from Shared Caching

Updated: September 9, 2014

Please note the Azure Shared Caching service was retired on September 1, 2014 and with it the Azure Silverlight-based portal. When the Shared Caching service was retired, all remaining Shared Cache deployments were deleted. Microsoft strongly encourages you to migrate at the earliest opportunity all existing Shared Caching applications to either the Managed Cache Service (currently in GA) or to the new Azure Redis Cache (currently in Preview). For migration guidance, including guidance for migrating without making code changes, see Migrate from Shared Caching. For more information about the current Azure Cache offerings, see Azure Cache and Which Azure Cache offering is right for me?.

This topic provides an outline of migration guidance. To migrate with no code changes, see Migrate to Azure Managed Cache. To migrate and take advantage of the new features of Azure Redis Cache (Preview), see Migrate to Azure Redis Cache.

Migrating your applications that use Microsoft Azure Shared Caching to Managed Cache Service can be accomplished with minimal configuration changes to your application. Because Managed Cache Service uses most of the same API as Shared Caching, existing code that uses Shared Caching to access a cache can be reused with Managed Cache Service.

For step-by-step migration guidance on moving from Shared Caching to Managed Cache Service, see Migrate from Shared Caching to Azure Managed Cache Service.

Migrating your applications that use Shared Caching to Azure Redis Cache (Preview) can be accomplished with minimal changes to your application. While the APIs are not exactly the same; they are similar, and much of your existing code that uses Shared Caching to access a cache can be reused with minimal changes.
