You can now use ElastiCache self-service updates feature to apply updates on Memcached and Redis cache clusters, in addition to Redis replication groups at the time of your choosing and track the progress in real-time. 

When service updates applicable to your Memcached or Redis clusters become available, we will notify you via multiple channels including ElastiCache console, Emails, Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), Amazon Personal Health Dashboard (PHD) and Amazon CloudWatch Events.  

You can start using self-service updates via the ‘Service Updates’ page in the Amazon ElastiCache console, Amazon ElastiCache API and Amazon CLI. The self-service updates feature is available in all Amazon Web Services Regions for Memcached and Redis cache clusters, and Redis replication groups. For more information about this feature, see ElastiCache for Memcached Service Updates and ElastiCache for Redis Service Updates
