My one-hundred-and-sixteenth podcast is up. One of the big announcements coming out of TechEd this week was Microsoft' "Velocity" product, a distributed in-memory cache. I sit down with two of the architects of the project and try to get the real story. Check out Dare's excellent analysis of Velocity as well as the MSDN Page for Velocity where you can download the CTP1 and try it on your sites today.
Also check out memcached (Win32 port) and the unofficial memcached .net library as well as the ASP.NET providers for memcached as well as the providers on CodePlex. Hopefully we'll see some detailed benchmarks soon comparing Velocity and memcached. I'll also personally be looking at the Velocity APIs giving my feedback to the team for future CTPs.
If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with µtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.
Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Telerik's new stuff is pretty sweet, check out the ONLINE DEMO of their new ASP.NET AJAX suite. RadGrid handles sorting, filtering, and paging of hundreds of thousands of records in milliseconds, and the RadEditor loads up to 4 times faster and the navigation controls now support binding to web services on the client.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
