Benefits of AWS ElastiCache – A fully managed Caching service by Amazon

Caching involves the storing of a subset of data onto a high-speed data storage layer. It helps in processing the requests for that particular data faster by accessing the data’s primary storage location. It is useful to retrieve previously used data efficiently.

AWS ElastiCache is a fully managed caching service by Amazon Web Services (AWS). It provides an in-memory caching solution for cloud-based applications, allowing them to quickly retrieve data without having to query a database every time. Through AWS ElastiCache, web applications can access and store data more quickly due to the managed in-memory data store capabilities.

The two popular open-source caching engines supported by Elasticache include: Memcached and Redis. Memcached is a simple, high-performance, and distributed memory object caching system, while Redis is a more advanced key-value data store that supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, and sorted sets. Key performance measures associated with Redis or Memcached nodes are easily tracked using Amazon ElastiCache. 

Benefits of AWS ElastiCache

  • Extreme performance: As the data is stored on a sub layer, accessing data i,e. reading data from in-memory cache is faster which improves the overall performance of the application. ElastiCache consists of end-to-end hardware and software stack for faster performance.
  • Highly secure: Amazon ElastiCache simplifies the architecture while maintaining security boundaries and take advantage of granular access control to manage groups. By continuously monitoring the Redis open-source code, firmware and operating system, it is possible to detect security vulnerabilities and maintain a secure environment.
  • Reduce load at the backend: ElastiCache reduces the load on the database and protect it from slower performance under load, or even crashing at times of spikes.  
  • Reduce database cost: Cache includes hundreds of thousands of instances in a single cache instance that replaces several database instances. It helps in reducing the overall cost for primary database. 
  • Provides scalability: Amazon ElastiCache allows easily scale the data as the application grows. One of its main features is the capability to scale-in and scale-out an online cluster without disrupting Redis performance, responding smoothly to fluctuating workload demands.   
  • Fully managed service: Amazon ElastiCache does not need any hardware provisioning, software patching, setup configuration, failure recovery, monitoring, and backups. 
  • Integration with other AWS services: ElastiCache integrates seamlessly with other AWS services such as Amazon RDS, Amazon EC2, and AWS Lambda. This allows users to build and deploy their applications quickly and easily.


Amazon ElastiCache provides a resilient system that mitigates the risk of overloaded databases, which slow website and application load times, by automatically detecting and replacing failed nodes. Amazon Management Console along with Amazon ElastiCache allows adding an in-memory layer to the infrastructure in a matter of minutes.

AWS Cloud Cost and Sustainability

Cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) can offer significant benefits to businesses, including cost savings, scalability, and increased flexibility. However, these benefits can come at a cost, and it’s important to be aware of ways to save money and optimize costs.

AWS Cloud offers a range of cost-effective services that can help you optimize your cloud spending while maintaining your sustainability goals. Here are some ways to save money on cloud services while improving your sustainability:

  • AWS Cost Explorer: AWS Cost Explorer is a cost management tool that can help you identify areas where you can save money. It allows you to analyze your AWS costs and usage patterns over time and provides recommendations on how to optimize your costs.
  • AWS Savings Plans: AWS Savings Plans provide flexible pricing options for your compute usage. You can choose between two options: Compute Savings Plans and EC2 Instance Savings Plans. Both options provide significant discounts for committed usage, which can help you save money on your cloud services.
  • AWS Auto Scaling: AWS Auto Scaling can help you optimize your costs by automatically adjusting your compute resources based on demand. This means that you only pay for the resources you need, and you can avoid paying for unused resources.
  • AWS Spot Instances: AWS Spot Instances allow you to bid on unused EC2 capacity, which can help you save up to 90% on your compute costs. Spot Instances can be a cost-effective option for workloads that are flexible and can handle interruptions.
  • AWS Lambda: AWS Lambda is a serverless computing service that can help you save money by eliminating the need for servers. With Lambda, you only pay for the compute time you use, which can help you reduce your costs.
  • AWS CloudFormation: AWS CloudFormation is a service that helps you automate your infrastructure deployment. By automating your infrastructure deployment, you can reduce the time and resources required to manage your infrastructure, which can help you save money.
  • AWS Well-Architected: AWS Well-Architected provides a framework for designing and operating reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective systems in the cloud. By following the best practices outlined in AWS Well-Architected, you can optimize your cloud spending while maintaining your sustainability goals.

In addition to these tips, you can also consider using reserved instances, which provide significant discounts for committed usage or using a mix of on-demand and spot instances to optimize your costs. By optimizing your cloud spend and improving your sustainability, you can achieve a cost-effective and environmentally friendly cloud infrastructure.


The cloud has become the go-to solution for a lot of people, including businesses. The traditional in-house setup is expensive and complicated, but the cloud takes that hassle out of your hands. But it’s important to realize that you don’t have to go with the cheapest service provider because going with the cheapest doesn’t always equate to efficiency. You want your company’s data to be safe in the cloud, right? Not just any cloud service will do. It’s important to choose wisely if you want your cloud services to get the job done.

Sustainability is one of the most important elements to consider when securing your cloud service. By optimizing AWS costs, you can save money and maintain a healthy budget while also reducing your risk of failure.

GoDgtl’s AWS Cloud Cost Optimization experts don’t just help you migrate to the cloud but also give you the insightful guidance you need to ensure that your cloud spend is productive and efficient, without compromising your users’ experience.
