We are pleased to announce the availability of the Amazon ElastiCache Cluster Client for PHP. This Client supports Auto Discovery, a novel way to connect to your Amazon ElastiCache cluster. Auto Discovery enables automatic discovery of cache nodes by clients when the nodes are added to or removed from an ElastiCache cluster.

As before, Amazon ElastiCache remains protocol-compliant with Memcached, a widely adopted memory object caching system, so code, applications, and popular tools that you use today with existing Memcached environments will continue to work seamlessly with Auto Discovery.

To get started you will need the Amazon ElastiCache Cluster Client which is now available for both Java and PHP and can be downloaded from the Amazon ElastiCache Console.
