Does SQl Server 2014 In Memory Session Storage for Asp.Net require serialization?


Hi guys - first post so big up yourselves!

Looking at using the ASP.NET Session State using SQL Server In-Memory as released by Microsoft.

In the past when storing session data in Sql Server in the 'traditional' manner we need to serialize our objects before storing in Sql Server. Given that this new method is In Memory (as opposed to on disk) it implies to me that serialization may not be necessary.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

None of the articles I have come across mention this aspect and my DB team is asking for good reason to set this feature up whereas I am at still at proof of concept stage and need an answer to this issue before pursuing further.

Thanks a lot - apologies if some consider this an Asp.Net question - simply trying to find some info!
