Amazon ElastiCache for Redis adds dynamic network processing to enhance I/O handling in Redis 5.0.3. By utilizing the extra CPU power available in nodes with four or more vCPUs, ElastiCache transparently delivers up to 83% increase in throughput and up to 47% reduction in latency per node. You can now benefit from the enhanced I/O handling to further boost application performance and reduce costs.  

Amazon ElastiCache for Redis improves throughput and reduces latency by leveraging more cores for processing I/O and dynamically adjusting to the workload. These improvements work best for applications that require a large number of concurrent connections to the Redis server. No client-side changes are needed.

Amazon ElastiCache for Redis 5.0.3 with enhanced I/O handling is available in all Amazon Web Services regions. To get started, log into the Amazon Web Services Management Console.
