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.

  1. Increase number of databases

    Is there a way to increase the number of databases? Based on the tier, I am limited to fixed number of databases, but is there a negative impact if I wanted to increase beyond this number? Since the memory of the cache applies across all databases, why is there these limits?

  2. Add Redis certificates to java truststore

    Connecting from java client to Azure Redis SSL port requires us to import the Redis certificate to java kestore. This is not documented in the Redis SSL java client. Is it posssible to add the certificate to JDK itself ?

  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.

  4. 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

  5. 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).

  6. Work on creation time of Redis Cache

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

  7. 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 redis cache pricing page

    The information in this page (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/cache/) seems to be wrong - headers for 2nd and 3rd columns seem swapped as they list that Standard is the top performance tier, whereas Premium is in-between Basic and Standard.
    Also, you should consider a more effective way to report this type of bugs, directly in the page, rather than going to a general feedback forum which may not be the proper place...

  9. Add more detailed analytics about gets and sets to diagnose problems and monitor cache

    Currently there's no easy way when we see a spike in gets or sets to see what's happening. We have to start guessing, and neither the monitoring dashlets nor the Application Insights external dependency track are useful. It'd be great to have some form of get/set tracking to diagnose problemas.

  10. 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.

  11. Have better status report in portal

    It is extremely frustrating when the redis server keeps refuse connection and there is no indication of why it is so in the portal. Since the server seems to be sending ECONNRESET to all command, I can't use redis-cli to check or recover.

    Also once the redis cache reachs max connection, there is no way to manage either from redis-cli or portal
