Managed Cache Service Pricing

Managed Cache Service is set to be retired November 30, 2016 as per this announcement. We recommend customers to move to Azure Redis Cache.

If you are an existing Managed Cache Service customer, you should migrate to Azure Redis Cache before the Managed Cache Service retirement date.

Support & SLA

  • We provide technical support for all Azure services released to General Availability, including Azure Redis Cache and Managed Cache Service, through Azure Support, starting at $29.0/month. Billing and subscription management support is provided at no cost.
  • Service Level Agreement (SLA): Azure Redis Cache guarantees that a Standard / Premium cache will be available at least 99.9% of the time. To learn more about our SLA, please visit the SLA page. SLA only covers connectivity to the Cache endpoints. The SLA does not cover protection from data loss. We recommend using Redis data persistence feature in the Premium tier to increase resiliency against data loss.
