This module offers integration between Drupal and Windows server AppFabric Cache, through the standard Drupal Cache API. It is intended to be used on Windows Drupal setups (IIS or Apache based stacks).
The target is to improve scalability of Drupal on a Windows / IIS environment, with purposes similar to memcache/memcached on Linux.
Deploy AppFabricCacheWrapper.dll in .Net's GAC, e.g.:
gacutil /i AppFabricCacheWrapper.dll
Register the COM assembly:
Note: the above steps will be integrated in an automated setup.

If the IIS server and the AppFabric server are not part of the same domain or you choose a local user for the worker process identity, make sure that an identical user exists on the AppFabric server (passthrough authentication).
Grant access to the user configured in the previous step via Powershell:
