Amazon ElastiCache now supports the AWS Graviton2-based T4g instance family in the following regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (Northern California), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Stockholm), Europe (Frankfurt), South America (Sao Paulo), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Canada (Central), and mainland China (Ningxia, Beijing). Customers choose ElastiCache for workloads that require accelerated performance with microsecond latency and high throughput. T4g instances are ideal for running applications with moderate CPU usage that experience temporary spikes in usage.

AWS Graviton2 processors are custom built by Amazon using 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores to deliver the best price performance for your cloud workloads. T4g instances leverage the Amazon Nitro System and ENA (Elastic Network Adapter). They are a burstable general-purpose instance type that provide a baseline level of CPU performance with the ability to burst CPU usage.

AWS Graviton2 is available for Amazon ElastiCache for Redis and for Memcached to help with a seamless update from previous generation instances. For more information on pricing and regional availability, please refer to the Amazon ElastiCache pricing page. To get started and update your existing instances, review the Amazon ElastiCache documentation.
