Patching Distributed Cache Servers


I was attending SharePoint Shop Talk today and the discussion was about Distributed Cache where I learned about Steve Peschka blog about Patching Distributed Cache Service. Not very long ago I was working on customer issues with Distributed Cache. You can find the blog below.

I also dropped another questions regarding running the Distributed Cache Service either on WFEs or App Servers and got thoughts from panel that it would better based on size of SharePoint Farm if we run it dedicated servers. This will surly help our WFE and App servers retain the memory that Distributed Cache is taking.
