    Thats great. Do you know if there is any support for using CACHING capabilities for an existing web application built with 1.1 or 2.0 framework? I understand installation requires 3.5 or 4.0 framework (which will ideally be a separate server) but as far as CLIENT(s) accessing Cache (or distributed cached data) – is that even possible or completely out of the picture?

  2. Rama says:

    Cache Clients need to be build using .NET 3.5 SP1 or .NET 4.0

    Cache servers must be installed on machines having .NET 4.0

    Just tried a simple web application, modified the project properties 'Target Framework' to use .NET 2.0 – it does not even build.

    Is there a benefit of hosting non-WF WCF services in Windows Server AppFabric?  We are currently hosting all WCF services as Windows services.

       I am looking to get some help with configuring Windows Server AppFabric for multiple environments. I've had a question posted on StackOverflow (…/multiple-instances-of-windows-server-appfabric-configuration) for some time now with no response. I am wondering if you could direct me to where I would best be able to get help with my configuration issues?
