AppFabric is an evolution of the Windows Process Activation service (WAS) and the Application Server role in Windows Server to host and manage WCF and WF services. As such, AppFabric is closely aligned with .NET Framework 4 and makes use of several features that are provided as part of the Framework offering key functionality such as persistence, monitoring, and hosting of WCF and WF services. AppFabric also integrates with Internet Information Services (IIS) providing management and monitoring tools within the IIS management console.
