Release Notes

This walkthrough demonstrates how to set-up and deploy a simple cache using Windows Azure AppFabric. The cache is provisioned via the Windows Azure developer Portal and then wired into a simple application using Visual Studio. There are scripts and code to download, if desired, for this demonstration. At the end of this demonstration you will understand how to get a simple cache up and running.

This demonstration shows you how to place and retrieve data from a public feed into the Windows Azure AppFabric cache by:
  • Populating an ASP.NET GridView control with a formatted Twitter feed
  • Provisioning a Windows Azure AppFabric Cache
  • Retrieving Twitter data into the cache
  • Using ASP.NET Trace to compare the performance benefits

  • Windows Azure AppFabric account (to provision the cache)
  • Visual Studio 2010 (Express or retail SKUs)
  • OPTIONAL: Windows Azure account (if you want to provision the project in the cloud)
