Amazon ElastiCache for Redis version 7.1 is now generally available. This release contains performance improvements which enable workloads to drive higher throughput and lower operation latencies. ElastiCache customers can achieve over 1 million requests per second per node on r7g.4xlarge or larger. Amazon ElastiCache for Redis version 7.1 can achieve up to 100% more throughput and 50% lower P99 latency, compared to Elasticache for Redis version 7.0.
Customers choose ElastiCache to power some of their performance-sensitive, real-time applications, that require fast data access, fast response time and cost reduction. As they scale their applications, they have a growing need for high throughput, while keeping latency under 1ms per request. Today, customers can double the performance by upgrading from ElastiCache for Redis 7.0 to 7.1, and can scale to 500 millions of requests per second (RPS) with microsecond response time.
ElastiCache for Redis version 7.1 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, at no additional cost. No application or service configuration changes are required.
