Yes. In Premium tier you can scale out to multiple Redis Cache units.
We recommend new development use the Azure Redis Cache due to the flexibility it offers. It is based on the open standard Redis protocol that is 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 you might build on Azure.
