Memorystore

Reduce latency with scalable, secure, and highly available in-memory service for Redis and Memcached.

  • Build application caches that provide sub-millisecond data access

  • 100% compatible with open source Redis and Memcached

  • Migrate your caching layer to cloud with zero code change

Benefits

Focus on building great apps

Memorystore automates complex tasks for open source Redis and Memcached like enabling high availability, failover, patching, and monitoring so you can spend more time coding.

Scale as needed

Scale as your application grows. You can scale reads to over a million QPS with Redis 6 and Read Replicas. Memorystore for Memcached provides clusters as large as 5 TB to meet your caching needs. 

Highly available

Memorystore for Redis standard tier instances supports up to five read replicas which are replicated across zones and provide a 99.9% availability SLA, resulting in minimal disruption of applications.
