We are happy to announce the preview release of the AWS .NET Distributed Cache Provider for DynamoDB. This library enables Amazon DynamoDB to be used as the storage for ASP.NET Core’s distributed cache framework. 

A cache can improve the performance of an application; an external cache allows the data to be shared across application servers and helps to avoid cache misses when the application is restarted or redeployed. Customers can now use DynamoDB tables to cache their session state using ASP.NET Core’s distributed cache framework. 

Get started by installing the AWS.DistributedCacheProvider package from It is open sourced, and we welcome community contributions! To learn more, go to our blog post, visit our GitHub page and our developer documentation.
