One or more of my Amazon ElastiCache nodes running Memcached is scheduled for maintenance. Because Memcached doesn’t offer a replication or failover option, how do I minimize the data that will be lost when my nodes are replaced?

You can find a list of potential options at Actions You Can Take When a Node is Scheduled for Replacement. For best-practices information on designing fault-tolerant Memcached infrastructure, see Mitigating Failures when Running Memcached.

For more information about ElastiCache maintenance windows, see Maintenance Window.
