Creating Caches (Azure Shared Caching)
Updated: June 19, 2014
|Please note the Azure Shared Caching service will be retired on September 1, 2014 and with it the Azure Silverlight-based portal. Once the Shared Caching service is retired, all remaining Shared Cache deployments will be deleted. Microsoft strongly encourages you to migrate at the earliest opportunity all existing Shared caches 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.|
The first step to use Shared Caching is to create a cache. This is done in the Azure Management Portal. Once a cache has been created, you can manage the cache through the Management Portal and develop applications that use that cache.
