Custom Provider for the Cluster Configuration (Windows Server AppFabric Caching)

Windows Server AppFabric provides the option of using a custom provider to store the cluster configuration settings. This topic discusses the process for creating and registering a custom provider for AppFabric Caching.

Creating a Custom Provider

Custom providers are required to implement the ICustomProvider interface. This interface provides a way for the cache cluster to communicate with the custom provider to store cache cluster configuration settings. The custom provider then chooses how best to store and manage these settings.

Registering a Custom Provider

The .NET assembly that implements the ICustomProvider interface must be installed to the Global Assembly Cache. In addition, you must create a registry entry that exposes this custom provider to AppFabric. For more information, see How To: Register Custom Providers.
