Amazon ElastiCache makes it easy to set up, manage, and scale distributed in-memory cache environments in the AWS Cloud. It provides a high performance, resizable, and cost-effective in-memory cache, while removing complexity associated with deploying and managing a distributed cache environment. Amazon ElastiCache works with both the Redis and Memcached cache engines.

On this page you will find the resources to move your data from self-hosted Redis or Memcached cache to fully-managed Amazon ElastiCache service.

Customer migration stories

The Pokémon Company Migrates to AWS Purpose-Built Databases

Learn how Pokémon Company International decided to make changes to the infrastructure of their Pokémon Trainer Club, supported by a third-party NoSQL document database for more than 300 million Pokémon GO users.

As part of those changes, Pokémon moved user caching to Amazon ElastiCache, taking advantage of both Redis and Memcached. Redis queues tasks for new users, so they can be prompted to complete post-authentication tasks such as accepting terms and conditions. Memcached helps keep tickets live so that existing users’ sessions are not interrupted when new users join.
