New Enterprise and Enterprise Flash tiers for Azure Cache for Redis now generally available
Published date: 02 March, 2021
The new Enterprise and Enterprise Flash tiers for Azure Cache for Redis were built through a collaboration with Redis Labs. These new tiers offer you powerful features that enhance the speed, scale, and reliability of your Azure Cache for Redis, such as Redis Module support and larger cache sizes (up to 13 TB) through Redis on Flash. The tiers also include the preview of a new feature called active geo-replication that allows for multi-primary writes. That means data can be written locally in more than one region and changes are automatically replicated to and merged with other regions. Active geo-replication allows for the creation of globally distributed caches and offers improved latency and availability (architected for 99.999 percent) with less than six minutes of downtime per year.
