I’m going to create a new cache in Azure, which cache should I use?
We recommend that new developments use the Azure Cache for Redis due to the flexibility it offers. It’s based on the open standard Redis protocol that’s supported by many programming languages (C/C++, .NET, Go, Java, Node.js, Objective C, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby and over 29 more languages). This allows it to be used by nearly any workload that you might build on Azure.
