ASP.NET 4 Cache Providers for Azure Managed Cache Service
Updated: August 25, 2015
|Microsoft recommends all new developments use Azure Redis Cache. For current documentation and guidance on choosing an Azure Cache offering, see Which Azure Cache offering is right for me?|
These providers are designed to be used with ASP.NET applications that run in Azure. Although you can access a Managed Cache Service cache from an on-premises ASP.NET application, the latency of doing so would outweigh the benefits. If you require caching for on-premises ASP.NET applications, you can create an on-premises cache cluster with Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server and uses its session state provider. For more information about Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server, see Windows Server AppFabric Caching Concepts.
|Both providers require your projects to compile against the full version of the .NET 4 Framework or higher (rather than the client version).|
