Today we have added an example of how to use Windows Server AppFabric Caching in conjunction with high performance SOA-based applications. The 'Common Data Caching Sample' package contains both a white paper describing the solution as well as some sample code showing how to inject and consume data from the in-memory cache.

Last month I believe I neglected to blog about the 'Silverlight Reporting Sample' that was added. It shows how to use our 'reporting extensibility' feature to create custom reports, which can then be made available to admins and users through a fancy Silverlight web app.

Both are available on the HPC Pack 2008 R2 SP1 SDK page. For questions/discussion on these samples, or to suggest a topic for our next sample code update, head over to the Windows HPC Developer Forum.
