add velocity to all roles
Azure now supports a family of AppFabric (Velocity) based caches..
More details can be found at the Azure Cache home page – http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/cache
I don't see this as resolved. Paying for an extra dedicated service over utilizing free resources on existing roles is very wasteful ($$$). I'd like to at least have the option of which to use, "Dedicated" or "Roles" based caching.
As much as I love working with Azure, I cannot believe we STILL do not have Velocity in Azure... This is VERY important for real-world applications.
