Azure Redis Cache

Fully managed, open-source-compatible in-memory data store to power fast, scalable applications

Fully managed service

Enjoy a fully managed version of the popular open-source Redis server with a turnkey caching solution. Harness the benefits without the need to become an expert in deploying and managing it.

High performance

Azure Redis Cache achieves superior throughput and latency performance by storing data in memory instead of on disk. It consistently serves read and write requests within single-digit milliseconds, delivering exceedingly fast cache operations to scale data tiers as application loads increase.

Built-in reliability

Standard and Premium tiers include a redundant pair of virtual machines (VMs) configured for data replication to ensure maximum reliability. Premium caches also can replicate data across Azure regions as part of an application’s disaster-recovery implementation.

Flexible scaling

With three tiers, Azure Redis Cache fits your needs. Start with any cache size and scale up to a larger one later without any service downtime, or scale down a cache within the same tier.

Enterprise-grade security

Azure Redis Cache supports industry-standard SSL to secure your data in transit and Azure Storage disk encryption at rest. Premium caches can be placed in your own Azure Virtual Network (VNet) so that you can further restrict traffic routes to and from your cache through your VNet topology and access policies.

Open-source compatible

At its core, Azure Redis Cache is backed by the open-source Redis server and natively supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets. If your application uses Redis, it will work as is with Azure Redis Cache.

What you can build using Azure Redis Cache

Data cache

Azure Redis Cache perfectly complements Azure database services such as Cosmos DB. It provides a cost-effective solution to scale, read and write throughput of your data tier. Store and share database query results, session states, static contents and more using a common cache-aside pattern.

DatencacheAzure Redis Cache ist die perfekte Ergänzung zu Azure-Datenbankdiensten wie Cosmos DB. Azure Redis Cache ist eine kosteneffektive Lösung zum Skalieren des Lese- und Schreibdurchsatzes Ihrer Datenschicht. Mit einem allgemeinen cachefremden Muster können Sie Abfrageergebnisse, Sitzungszustände, statische Inhalte und viele weitere Informationen Ihrer Datenbank speichern und freigeben.

Scalable web apps

Quickly save, retrieve and update web session data such as user cookies and output pages. Azure Redis Cache improves the performance of your application by increasing its responsiveness and enabling it to handle increasing loads with less web-compute resources.
