Amazon Web Services (AWS) is releasing Amazon MemoryDB for Redis, a fully managed, Redis-compatible, in-memory database.
Amazon MemoryDB for Redis enables customers to achieve ultra-fast performance with high availability and durability for their most business-critical applications that require sub-millisecond response times, according to the vendor.
With Amazon MemoryDB for Redis, customers can use the same familiar and flexible Redis data structures and application programming interface (API) they use without having to separately manage a cache and a durable database, or the required underlying infrastructure.
Amazon MemoryDB for Redis is a fully managed, Redis-compatible, in-memory database that provides low latency, high throughput, and durability at any scale to make it easier to build applications that require a durable database with sub-millisecond latency.
Amazon MemoryDB for Redis stores entire datasets in-memory and can be used as a single, primary database, enabling customers to build high-performance applications with microservices without having to separately manage a cache, durable database, or the required underlying infrastructure.
Compatible with the popular Redis API, Amazon MemoryDB for Redis enables developers to quickly build applications using the same familiar Redis application code, data structures, and commands they use today for building microservices applications. Amazon MemoryDB for Redis automatically scales to provide customers with ultra-low latency at any scale for applications that demand high performance. Data in Amazon MemoryDB for Redis is always encrypted and stored with high durability in a transactional log across multiple Availability Zones (Multi-AZ) to enable fast database recovery and restart without data loss.
“More and more customers have told us they need an easier way to build modern applications with microservices, which demand both extreme performance and durability,” said Raju Gulabani, VP of databases and analytics, AWS. “With Amazon MemoryDB for Redis, customers can now simplify their architecture with a durable and ultra-fast in-memory database, free from the hassle of managing a separate cache, database, and the underlying infrastructure, to quickly and easily build and scale applications that require real-time interactivity and reinvent customer experiences.”
To get started, customers can easily create an Amazon MemoryDB for Redis cluster in minutes through the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or AWS Software Development Kit (SDK).
