Last post before the Christmas holidays will be on AppFabric. In my previous post two weeks ago I wrote a story on BizTalk Server and what community has contributed on this great technology. In this one I'd like to discuss AppFabric. When you talk about AppFabric in a certain context than it can either mean Windows Azure AppFabric or Windows Server AppFabric. Windows Azure AppFabric is a part of the Windows Azure Platform, and provides a couple of services like access control, service bus, caching and recently integration (i.e. release of the Windows Azure Service Bus EAI/EDI). The Windows Server AppFabric provides on-premise hosting for services (WF, WCF) and caching on Windows Server OS. If you wonder which technology to use you can read the article: Which AppFabric am I Looking For? (Azure or Server) from Mike McKeown.
Through TechNet Wiki you will find a number of articles on both technologies. On Windows Azure AppFabric you will find the following articles contributed by the community and Microsoft employees:
Windows Azure Access Control:
Windows Azure Service Bus:
Windows Azure Caching:
Window Azure Integration:
On Windows Server AppFabric you will find a nice list of articles through the Technology Portal page of TechNet Wiki:
Windows Server AppFabric:
Both these technologies will evolve and mature more and more, so you will see in the future more articles being contributed to TechNet Wiki by the community and Microsoft employees.
