Microsoft Ends Support for AppFabric 1.1 In A Year

It does not seem that long that AppFabric came out, and now Microsoft has decided to end support for AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server about a year from now (Read Here). I consider this technology a pioneer for building scalable caching and implementing enterprise business processes easily using other technologies like WCF & WF. Since then new technologies have rapidly taken shape. For instance, Redis is now the technology of choice for caching and we have seen a new migration to the cloud and Azure, which now includes BizTalk services instead of the raw frameworks like WCF and WF for implementing business process solutions. Although, I feel AppFabric was somewhat short lived, but the concept was an important factor to conquer, and as a technologist, we cannot invest to heavily in a technology because they always evolve. This is a frustration unfortunately we will always live with.
