Data Storage

AppFabric stores persistence and monitoring information in a database. Selecting default configuration options during setup will result in the creation of two SQL Server data stores, ApplicationServerMonitoring, and ApplicationServerPersistence, which are used to store persistence and monitoring information, respectively. However, you can configure additional data store for scale-out or data separation as needed by using the Configuration Tool or PowerShell cmdlets provided with AppFabric.

Database Login Accounts

When using SQL Server, AppFabric creates Windows groups and maps them to SQL Server Database Roles. These roles are used to control access to the data stored within the data store, so that only users that are members of the correct Windows group can access the data. The following table lists the default Windows groups and the corresponding SQL Server Database Roles.
