I want to improve fault tolerance for my Amazon ElastiCache cluster running Redis. How do I enable Multi-AZ replication and automatic failover?

Follow the instructions at Enabling Multi-AZ with Automatic Failover. You can enable Multi-AZ replication with automatic failover when you create a new Redis cluster, or for existing clusters with an existing replication group.

When implementing a replication solution, keep ElastiCache best practices in mind; make sure that you’ve allocated enough memory to create a point-in-time Redis snapshot.

Note: This procedure only applies for ElastiCache clusters running Redis.
