Scaling Applications with Azure Redis Cache and Machine Learning

"How do we scale to this mass? How do we optimise performance across regions? We’ll present design best practices and code examples for implementing the Azure Redis Cache and tuning the performance of ASP.NET MVC applications, optimising cache hit ratio and reducing “miss rate” with smart algorithms processed by Machine Learning, for automating and monitoring the deployment of the Redis cache across different tiers, persistence layers and replicated nodes."
