Windows Azure Cache Options

This week (January 27th – 31st) is Windows Azure week.  As part of Windows Azure week, I was honored to publish a blog for Microsoft Press where I highlighted the various cache options available in Windows Azure.  In this post I discuss both In Role Cache for Cloud Services (web and worker roles) and the new Cache Service for use with Cloud Services, Web Sites, and VMs.  The post goes into detail on how to set up both options, along with some suggestions on which to select for your scenario.  I had a lot of fun writing the post.  I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
