Cache

Azure Cache is a family of cache offerings that support high throughput, low-latency data access, to enable building fast, scalable applications.
- Azure Redis Cache (Preview) is based on the popular open source Redis Cache engine. The service gives users access to a secure, dedicated Redis Cache, managed by Microsoft.
- Azure Managed Cache Service: Built on App Fabric Cache. This is a dedicated managed service.
- In-Role Cache: Built on App Fabric Cache. This is a self-hosted cache, available via the Azure SDK.

    The time of creating a Redis Cache is to long. It should be improved

  2. Smaller Premium Redis Instances

    I have a requirement, where need high network performance and enhanced security but only 50MB and 250MB or 1GB size, 6GB cache and paying £205/mo doesn't fit well our current total spend is £450/mo

  3. scale to basic

    Give an option to rescale back to Basic tier. I started with Basic, switched to Standard but soon realized that I can not utilize it in near future and wanted to roll back to Basic. I was surprised when I saw that this option was not available.

  5. Having Smaller Instance of Redis

    The smallest instance right now is 250 megs. I think you should have a tiny instance too of around 50 megs. The price for 250 megs can be high if you start a new application that require some caching but just for few megs.

  8. Azure Portal: Redis 'Sets' metric should include counts from cmdstat_hset, cmdstat_hmset

    According to documentation Redis 'Sets' metric should include stats from following commands: cmdstat_set, cmdstat_hset, cmdstat_hmset, cmdstat_hsetnx, cmdstat_lset, cmdstat_mset, cmdstat_msetnx, cmdstat_setbit, cmdstat_setex, cmdstat_setrange, and cmdstat_setnx.

    Stats for hset and hmset commands are never displayed on 'Gets\Sets' chart in Azure portal. I've checked Redis stats using "info commandstats" command and those two stats (cmdstat_hset, cmdstat_hmset) are getting updated inside Redis Server but those changes are never reflected in Azure Portal metrics.
    Seems to be a bug.
    Related documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/redis-cache/cache-how-to-monitor

  9. Add data persistence and VNET support in Standard Tier

    The current plan design is completely unrealistic for real deployment:

    1. Persistence is too important for many situations, for example using redis as a queue for job runner which is very common practice
    2. VNET protection is also basic requirement. Read from redis:
    https://redis.io/topics/security

    REDIS on its own is not designed to work in public network, with or without SSL. Primary reason is being there is no rate limit for such cache, thus making brute force extremely efficient to ***** system password.

    I think with these 2 issues resolved on Standard tier (and most people really dont need premier tier,…

  10. Support RedisCache in Azure Stack

    Please add support of RedisCache in Azure Stack

    Azure RedisCache is a fundamental backbone service for applications using autoscaling (e.g: Cloud Service Web and Worker Role).

  11. Add measurable unit of Redis Cache performance like DTU (for SQL Database)

    We sometimes face performance issues. Microsoft provides the following documentation to investigate timeout problem.
    <https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/cache-how-to-troubleshoot/#stackexchangeredis-timeout-exceptions>

    But we can't identify root cause easily. So personally I think measurable unit of Redis Cache Performance like DTU for SQL database is very useful for customer. I understand Redis Cache Advisor is very helpful for us. But if you can, could you please consider this kind of ability for good experience.

  12. Provide Redis node event logs

    Currently if a Redis node swaps due to patching or failing there is no way to figure this out in the Azure portal. The only way to find out is to log a service ticket. Which isnt great for the customer and worse for MS.

    Please provide an event log in the portal that customers can use to see what node failures or swaps happen in the cluster.

  13. Allow vnet integration for standard Redis tier

    vnet is just a good idea generally, an easy way to get basic data segregation and protection but currently many services and pricing tiers do not support it.

    We use Redis and shouldn't have to spend £300/month for Premium just to get VNET integration. Please allow it for standard tier as well.

  20. More control on Redis Server updates

    According to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/cache-faq/, Redis server updates could cause the session disconnect.
    ---
    Server-side causes
    Azure was patching the instance where the cache was deployed
    This can be for Redis server updates or general VM maintenance.
    --

    I would like to avoid session disconnect during business hours.
    So I want to control when the Redis server updates. Or at least I want to know when the Redis server updates.

    ----
    Japanese:

    https://azure.microsoft.com/ja-jp/documentation/articles/cache-faq/ によると、Redis Server のアップデートによりセッションが切断されることがあり得ます。
    ---
    サーバー側の原因
    - Azure により、キャッシュがデプロイされているインスタンスに修正プログラムが適用されていた。
    - Redis サーバーの更新または VM の一般的なメンテナンスの場合もこれに該当します。
    ---

    避けることが可能なセッションの切断は避けたいです。
    そのため、Redis Server がいつアップデートされるかを、ユーザー側で制御したいです。
    もしくは、少なくとも、Redis Server がいつアップデートされるかを知りたいです。
