On the second day of Christmas, my true blog gave to me… two Sitecore PaaS features: Redis Cache and Azure Search!
I was interested by the introduction of Azure Search and Redis Cache. Azure Search basically renders the Lucene/SOLR discussion moot, and Azure Redis Cache brings about all kinds of capabilities for High Availability and Disaster Recovery as well as the sharing across a web farm.
Here are a few extra reads for the curious:
