White Paper Summary
The focus of this document is to provide specific recommendations on how to properly design an AppFabric deployment for enterprise-scale load requirements. We will start by providing a high-level understanding of the primary components of AppFabric. Following the high-level introduction, we will look at specific issues that influence your AppFabric architecture. It is important to understand how to conceptually scale out an AppFabric installation at the service and database tiers. These issues include concepts surrounding configuration of the hosting environment, the AppFabric Windows services, and deployment of .NET Framework WCF and WF services to an AppFabric web farm. The configuration of the persistence and monitoring data plays an important role in ensuring that your architecture is able to scale correctly over time. We will finally look at optimizations and different server and cluster configurations at the data-tier level.
