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 loss of data that can occur 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.

For more information about ElastiCache maintenance windows, see Managing When Maintenance is Performed.
