Recently, at the MIX conference we announced the release of a new version of the Access Control service and the upcoming release of the Caching service.
Today we are excited to announce that the Caching service has been released as a production service.
The Caching service is a distributed, in-memory, application cache service that accelerates the performance of Windows Azure and SQL Azure applications by allowing you to keep data in-memory and saving you the need to retrieve that data from storage or database.
We provide 6 different cache size options for you to choose from, varying from 128MB to 4GB.
In order for you to be able to start using the service and evaluate your needs we are running a promotion period in which we will not be charging for the service for billing periods prior to August 1, 2011...
