Using Azure In-Role Cache


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?

The topics in this section provide additional development guidance for In-Role Cache on Azure roles. For more general guidance, see Develop for Azure In-Role Cache. There have been several improvements to the role-based In-Role Cache API. For complete samples, see Azure In-Role Cache Samples.


Do not develop both Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server and Microsoft Azure Cache on the same development machine. It is possible to reference some of the Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server assemblies in the global assembly cache. This mistake could lead to incorrect or unexpected behavior.
