We’ll be shipping samples that demonstrate how to implement
a disk-based output cache provider that stores cached content on the
file-system. We’ll also be shipping samples that demonstrate how to
integrate output caching with the new Windows Server AppFabric Caching Service
(formerly known as “Velocity”). AppFabric’s caching service will be a
free, fully supported, Microsoft distributed cache system. It will also
be easy to use the new ASP.NET 4 output caching extensibility with memcached – a
popular open source distributed caching system.
You can learn more about how to create providers by watching
Stefan Schackow’s ASP.NET 4 Core Runtime talk at PDC 2009. You can also
learn more about AppFabric’s Caching service from this PDC 2009 talk.
