Now Available: Amazon ElastiCache Global Datastore for Redis

In-memory data stores are widely used for application scalability, and developers have long appreciated their benefits for storing frequently accessed data, whether volatile or persistent. Systems like Redis help decouple databases and backends from incoming traffic, shedding most of the traffic that would had otherwise reached them, and reducing application latency for users. Obviously, managing […]
