In-memory application cache for all kinds of data

Microsoft project code named “Velocity” provides a highly scalable in-memory application cache for all kinds of data. By using cache, you can significantly improve application performance by avoiding unnecessary calls to the data source. Distributed cache enables your application to match increasing demand with increasing throughput by using a cache cluster that automatically manages the complexities of load balancing. When you use “Velocity,” you can retrieve data by using keys or other identifiers, named “tags.” “Velocity” supports optimistic and pessimistic concurrency models, high availability, and a variety of cache configurations. “Velocity” includes an ASP.NET session provider object that enables you to store ASP.NET session objects in the distributed cache without having to write to databases, which increases the performance and scalability of ASP.NET applications. For more information, see the What’s New topic in the product documentation.

ASP.NET website "Cannot read configuration file due to insufficient permissions" in IIS 7 and Windows Server 2008

"The server is configured to use pass-through authentication with a built-in account to access the specified physical path. However, IIS Manager cannot verify whether the built-in account has access. Make sure that the application pool identity has Read access to the physical path. If this server is joined to a domain, and the application pool identity is NetworkService or LocalSystem, verify that \$ has Read access to the physical path. Then test these settings again."

1. Add IIS_IUSRS with Read permission on files in the folder
2. Change IIS authentication method to BasicAuthentication
3. refresh the website. It will work
