Your real-time applications can now benefit from Amazon ElastiCache for Redis support of Redis 5.0. Now you can take advantage of new Redis 5.0 features such as Redis Streams, enhanced sorted sets with pop operations, improved HyperLogLog algorithm, and better memory management.

You can create new clusters running Redis 5 by selecting the Redis 5.0.0 version during cluster creation via the console, AWS CLI, or AWS SDK. This release also includes the backporting of two important bug fixes from Redis 5.0.1 for the XCLAIM and RESTORE commands. 

Redis 5.0 support is available in all AWS regions. To get started with just a few clicks, log into the AWS Management Console.
