Redis OSS

“We use ElastiCache for Redis as a shared cache to an auto-scaling group of EC2 instances for our API management Platform, to get high availability and low latency. We wanted to have atomic increments as well as sorted sets. We were also concerned about availability and read performance across Multiple AZs. Because of these needs, we chose ElastiCache for Redis."

"Amazon Music Feature Repository (MFR) is a fully managed ML feature store utilized to store, share, and manage ML features to power personalization. MFR supports high throughput at low latency for online inference and is used repeatedly by dozens of teams across Amazon Music to maintain a consistent personalized experience. ElastiCache provides low latency storage and retrieval for 1 TB of ML features and is simple for the MFR team to manage for peak traffic. MFR with ElastiCache raises the bar for downstream teams with strict latency requirements by delivering batches of ML features at low latencies across North America, European Union and Far East regions (Music Search, Voice/Echo)."

“For startup companies, time is really important. Not needing to perform management tasks, provision hardware, check software patches, and maintain infrastructure gives us a lot more time to work on our ideas and our algorithms. One of the greatest features of ElastiCache is that it is very quickly up to date with the latest stable versions of Redis. It enables us to scale out easily, while still having that magic layer of redundancy in case things go wrong. It’s empowering when we, as engineers, can spin up a new Redis instance in minutes without having to think about maintenance, and we can rely on a hardened version of Redis.”

DBS Bank Ltd. (DBS) is a financial services group in Asia that offers innovative financial services to support a wide range of customers, including trading companies. Over the decades, the bank’s quantitative pricing engines helped traders identify the most profitable opportunities using in-house algorithms. These pricing engines were hosted on-premises using various legacy databases, which were costly to maintain and difficult to scale. DBS chose to build a cloud-based solution on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and used Amazon ElastiCache for Redis to improve its pricing query response time by 100x, scale to support hundreds of thousands of read/write processes per second, and achieve significant cost savings.

“We use ElastiCache Redis for an application that collects data for our test & learn experiments, processing ~200 million messages a day. We are using DynamoDB as a main data-store, fronting it with ElastiCache Redis. With ElastiCache Redis we were able to decrease our provisioned DynamoDB capacity by 90%, reducing total database cost by 6x. It is fully managed and offers us benefits such as convenient metrics as well as Multi-AZ. While we haven’t had the need to fall back to a read replica yet, it is great to know that if something goes bad, we will have the read replica automatically promoted to mitigate the impact on our application.”

"Swiggy faced the challenge of managing large amounts of feature data when building ML models. In this process, the data grows quickly to billions of  records, with millions being actively retrieved during model inference, all while operating under low latency constraints. Swiggy leveraged ElastiCache as the primary feature store for ML models by building an automated ingestion pipeline and online inferencing engine. Swiggy has benefited from ElastiCache primarily for low latency, multiple data structure support, and a highly scalable system (50 million queries per second). With great support from the ElastiCache team, Swiggy was able to manage the feature store in a cost-effective way."

"United Airlines, one of the largest airlines globally, relies on a centralized machine learning platform with a feature store at its core. The airline utilizes machine learning models to deliver personalized experiences to customers. With a significant customer base generating millions of daily requests and strict service level agreement requirements for quick response times, selecting the right feature store was crucial. United Airlines selected ElastiCache as its online feature store for serving real-time traffic due to its ability to provide ultra-low latency for millions of customers.
Since features need to be constantly available in-memory and have the latest values for accurate predictions by the ML models, they are stored in a feature store.  ElastiCache verifies that these features are updated as frequently as possible, enabling accurate predictions. An advantage of using ElastiCache is its support for global data stores, allowing the ML model to serve traffic from across multiple AWS Regions. This capability provides a robust and fail-safe plan to serve customers and offer personalized recommendations, such as selecting the right destination or finding the appropriate products during the check-in process. We recommend ElastiCache for real-time traffic scenarios where low latency is essential for serving data efficiently."
