Today, AWS announces the general availability of Amazon ElastiCache Serverless, a new serverless option for Amazon ElastiCache that simplifies cache management and instantly scales to support the most demanding applications. With ElastiCache Serverless, you can create a highly available and scalable cache in less than a minute, eliminating the need to plan for, provision, and manage cache cluster capacity. ElastiCache Serverless automatically stores data redundantly across multiple Availability Zones (AZs) and provides a 99.99% availability Service Level Agreement (SLA). With ElastiCache Serverless, you pay for data stored and compute consumed by your workload, with no upfront commitments or additional costs.

Hundreds of thousands of customers use ElastiCache to build highly responsive applications. With ElastiCache Serverless, you can now accelerate application performance without needing to manage infrastructure and capacity, saving hours of time. You can set up a new cache in under a minute without worrying about choosing a cache node type, number of shards, number of replicas, or node placements across AZs. ElastiCache Serverless continually monitors the memory, compute, and network utilization of the cache and instantly scales to accommodate application traffic. ElastiCache Serverless offers a single endpoint experience that simplifies the overall client configuration and reduces application disruption since clients do not need to handle changes to cluster topology during maintenance or scaling events.

ElastiCache Serverless supports Redis version 7.1 and Memcached version 1.6.22 and above and is available in all AWS commercial regions. To get started, create an ElastiCache Serverless cache in just a few steps by specifying a cache name using the AWS Management Console, Elasticache Software Development Kit (SDK), or AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).
