Announcing the Availability of Reserved Cache Nodes for Amazon ElastiCache

We are excited to announce the availability of Reserved Cache Nodes for Amazon ElastiCache. This allows you to save up to 70% over On Demand prices while adding an in-memory cache to your application architecture in a matter of minutes.

Amazon ElastiCache improves the performance of your web applications by retrieving data from a fast, in-memory cache instead of relying entirely on disk-based storage. Unlike other caching mechanisms, Amazon ElastiCache is fully-managed so you don’t have to worry about maintaining your own caching infrastructure. In addition, it is Memcached-compatible, so if you have existing Memcached-enabled applications, they will work with ElastiCache without any code changes.

Amazon ElastiCache can reduce the load on your databases significantly and improve throughput for read-heavy or compute-intensive workloads including:

  • Social Networking
  • Mobile and Social Gaming
  • E-Commerce Sites
  • Media Sites
  • Recommendation Engines
