AppFabric has been discontinued by Microsoft. As a result, all AppFabric users are looking for caching solutions that are a good alternative to AppFabric so they can migrate to it. NCache is an extremely fast and scalable open source distributed cache for .NET / .NET Core. NCache provides all of AppFabric features plus a lot more.
NCache provides a wrapper for AppFabric that makes the migration seamless for you. The AppFabric Wrapper by NCache allows you make only a single line of code change (namespace) to start using NCache in place of AppFabric. See the example below.
Full documentation available for NCache Wrapper as well as an AppFabric Migration Guide.
