We are excited to announce that Amazon ElastiCache for Redis now supports self-service updates. This feature allows you to apply service updates at the time of your choosing and track the progress in real-time. You now have the visibility and control on service updates to your ElastiCache for Redis cluster on a schedule that best fits your business needs.

When service updates applicable to your Redis replication group(s) become available, we will notify you via multiple channels including ElastiCache console, Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), 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 (including the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region operated by Sinnet and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region operated by NWCD) for Redis replication groups running engine versions 3.2.6 and later. For more information about this feature, see ElastiCache for Redis Service Updates.
