Is Azure Redis Cache recommended/tested by Episerver for storing Session State

Member since: 2010

I can't see that session state is mentioned here:

http://world.episerver.com/documentation/Items/Developers-Guide/Episerver-CMS/9/Deployment/Deployment-scenarios/Deploying-to-Azure-webapps/

I am wondering if RedisSessionStateProvider is recommended/tested by Episerver in case of scalable Azure solution (with multiple instances of a webapp).

For me, with RedisCache, export of Form results (new forms) don't work.

BR,

    Hi Majira.

    Redis is not officially supported for DXC. I talked to the DXC Managed Services earlier and were told that the Redis cache is being investigated for official support. I am though confident that a native Azure solution would work fine with EPiServer CMS and Commerce. We've set up numerous solutions relying on a on-premise Redis instance, so it sounds like something may be off with the Forms.

    Hope that helped you with some confidence in the Redis products... Which is great!

    Thx a lot, Casper!

    Unfortunately, I have had some issues with Redis, timeout exceptions in particular, so timeouts + this, I might opt for removing it.

    I can't do much about forms other than reporting this to Episerver.

    BR,

    For the sake of completeness, more details about session state:

    P.S. Submitted an issue for support with a detailed error when downloading forms.
