        Has there been any updates on this?
        It's taken 20 mins to create and destroy redis cache.
        This issue has been open since February 2015.

        Any update from this? I am experiencing this issues. It tooks long minutes for the provisioning.

        Redis Cache is the long pole in our deployment. If this can be shortened our application deployment time could be cut by 3/4.

        We have our infrastructure scripted. Theres quite a bit of it, it usually takes 3.5 minutes to create followed by 20 minutes of waiting for redis to provision

        Hi Team, Can this also please include the time it takes to delete the Redis Cache.

        Both of these operations take around 20-40 minutes at the moment

        Hi.
        Any news about that item?

        We are doing at least 20 - 50 deployments a day, each containing premium redis instance. Because everything waits for redis, deployment takes ages. Our VMs start in about 3 minutes, and we often wait for redis about 25+ minutes.

        In the meantime can anyone comment on why it takes 30 minutes? It's bizarre and incredibly annoying. In the event of a disaster, we have to wait 30 minutes just because we have a Redis cache in our deployment, makes you think twice about even having it there. Should we just not use Redis?

        Just to give some context to how bad create times are these are timings from two arm template deployments I just ran.

        Time to create a Sql server and provision a database 1 min 10 secs. Time to create a Redis cluster 14 mins 44 secs.
