Windows Server AppFabric

Posted: November 19, 2009  |  Categories: Microsoft Azure PDC09 Uncategorized


At PDC Bob Muglia, President Server and Tools Business, introduced the world to Windows AppFabric. Windows Server AppFabric is a new set of capabilities, bringing together the functionality of Dublin, as well as Velocity (a high-performance, distributed, highly-scalable in-memory cache). In a related move, the Service Bus and Access Control Services that were formerly part of the .NET Services brand have also been rebranded and we now have we now have “Windows Azure platform AppFabric Service Bus” and “Windows Azure platform AppFabric Access Control services”. Read Brain Loesgen post or Sam Gentile post.So there is something new to play with again. Like last year at PDC08 with Windows Azure. Have fun.
