Azure SQL w/In Memory OLTP vs Azure Redis Cache for SignalR backplane. RRS feed

  • Question

  • User456324022 posted

    Can Azure Sql with In-Memory OLTP be an effective replacement for Redis Cache as a high performance backplane in SignalR?  Why or why not?  The reason I ask is because I'd like to stick with Microsoft for my project but don't want to sacrifice performance. I went with Redis Cache as recommended by SignalR team.  This is for a client to client chat application.  Any guidance or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

    Hi jdn717,

    As far as I know, SignalR currently provides three backplanes:

    • Azure Service Bus
    • Redis
    • SQL Server

    And the backplane does not support Azure SQL Database.

    Best Regards,
