Like the same introduction for the Microsoft Azure
CDN, maybe it will be nearly the same for the Microsoft Azure Cache. The network regulation for an IT infrastructure, a better way for sending the content for the end users. If you are dealing with basic websites or HTTP protocols, the Microsoft Azure Cache Service will be the perfect match for you.

Well yes the Microsoft Cache is still in preview, however I will go to some features that might be helpful. The Microsoft Azure Cache Service is a very useful solution for building an accelerated high scalable application, there are several ways to so, based on the MSDN page there are around 3 ways to do so, one is through the Microsoft Azure Portal, you will find the Cache Service in one of the services at the left most of the page, you just need to scroll down. Or you can do the caching service through the In-Role Caching, through your Cloud Service, whether through the WebRole or even the WorkerRole and the third way is through the Sharing Cache Service, I won’t be covering this one as it will retire soon.

So to do the Microsoft Azure Caching service through the portal you will have to go to the Portal and scroll down until you find the cache Service.

Or you can go directly to the Data Services, you will find the “Cache -> Quick Create -> Continue the configuration”

cache configuration

So as normal for the region you will have to choose the nearest place to your target customers, after that we will have few Cache offerings:

  • Basic 128MB to 1GB
  • Standard 1GB to 10GB
  • Premium 5GB to 150GB

After that you can find the cache memory and you will choose what best suits you based on the cache offering chosen.

The other way the In-Role Cache, is a way to cache your data in a previously created, running role whether it was a WebRole or a WorkerRole, you can do so simply by modifying the Role Configuration file (which is ServiceConfigurationSetting) and the Client Configuration file (which is the web.config). You can do so following the instructions from the following link. In this case you don’t need anything from the caching service on the portal just you need to know and understand the capacity planning.
