In-Role Cache is Generally Available
In-Role Cache is now Generally Available and supported in production scenarios. For more information, see About In-Role Cache for Azure Cache.
In-Role Cache development and Server AppFabric development should not be done on the same machine
It is not supported to develop cloud services that use caching on a machine that also has Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server. You might see unexpected or inconsistent caching behavior when running either your AppFabric application on the machine or when testing the application in the compute emulator. Use separate computers for developing these applications and install only the required files.
Only one cache cluster is supported in a cloud service
Each cloud service should only configure one cache cluster. Specifically, this means that only one role per cloud service should enable caching. Instead of multiple cache clusters, make use of multiple named caches. For more information, see About In-Role Cache for Azure Cache.
The NuGet package installation will fail if total path length is exceeded
Installing the Microsoft Azure Cache libraries via NuGet might fail with the following error.
Install failed. Rolling back... The specified path, file name, or both are too long.
This can happen if the path where your project is located is too long. We recommend that you move your project to another location with a shorter path. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.
