Are you going to PDC? We are...

Come meet the Velocity Team in the pavilion and learn about Project "Velocity" in our 2 breakout sessions.

Project "Velocity": A First Look presented by Murali Krishnaprasad, Architect

It is predicted that all large applications will use a distributed data cache as the initial tier for all data access. This session presents an overview of "Velocity," Microsoft's distributed in-memory cache, and shows how it works with IIS, ASP.NET, ADO.NET and SQL Server Data Services.

Under the Hood: Velocity Architecture and Future Roadmap presented by Anil Nori, Distinguished Engineer

Velocity is an explicit, in-memory distributed cache. In this talk, we present Velocity's architecture to meet the high performance, scale, and availability requirements of web and enterprise applications. We will discuss mechanisms for data placement, data distribution, and data replication for performance, scale, availability respectively. We will describe mechanisms for providing database capabilities like LINQ support, indexing, concurrency control, and data consistency. We will also present the feature roadmap for Velocity.
