Starting today, Amazon MemoryDB for Redis is generally available in 11 additional AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US West (N. California, Oregon), Canada (Central), Europe (London, Stockholm), and Asia Pacific (Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo).

Amazon MemoryDB for Redis is a Redis-compatible, durable, in-memory database service that delivers ultra-fast performance. It is purpose built for modern applications with microservices architectures. Amazon MemoryDB is compatible with Redis, a popular open source data store, so customers can quickly build applications using the same flexible and friendly Redis data structures, APIs, and commands that they already use today. With Amazon MemoryDB, all of your data is stored in memory, which enables you to achieve microsecond read and single-digit millisecond write latency and high throughput. Amazon MemoryDB also stores data durably across multiple Availability Zones (AZs) using a Multi-AZ transactional log to enable fast failover, database recovery, and node restarts. Delivering both in-memory performance and Multi-AZ durability, Amazon MemoryDB can be used as a high-performance primary database for your microservices applications eliminating the need to separately manage both a cache and durable database.

With these additional regions, Amazon MemoryDB for Redis is now available in 15 AWS Regions. To get started, you can create an Amazon MemoryDB cluster in minutes through the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or AWS Software Development Kit (SDK).
