When you scale your applications, distributed cache is a must-have tool. Microsoft Azure Managed Caching and Redis Cache are the newest dedicated distributed cache solutions for Azure, but they are not the only option. In this session we will explore the caching options available to us in Microsoft Azure, including some non-MS solutions, such as Memcached and Couchbase. We will compare features, availability, deployment strategies, and of course, performance.
The keynote will highlight some of the latest innovations and announcements from Microsoft Azure, Windows and Office 365 and Microsoft's continuing support for cross platform development and open source software. Through a series of demos and best practice sharing John Shewchuk will describe how you can transition your company in a cloud first, mobile first world.
