Work on creation time of Redis Cache
The time of creating a Redis Cache is to long. It should be improved
Thank you for your feedback. This is on our backlog
Samuel Njogu commented
This is still taking too long, for an item already registered on your backlog almost 6 years ago today.
Any updates Azure team? THis is the most requested feature in this category and yet you are not doing any actions.

I waited for hour and half for the deployment @ westeurope. The API then returned an error and redis instance was not created. Frustrating. I'm working with Terraform like Josiah.
Come on Microsoft, 5 years?

We need to prioritize this. Many customers are complaining about long deployment times for this particular service(much longer than any other service available). I've tried this myself and even just deploying a simple Standard C1 size takes about 30 min to deploy.
Any updates Azure?
Patrick Ecker commented
Our whole ARM deployment would take 5min, but then there is Redis Cache: 20-30min @ west europe
mumtaz khan commented
its better to create redis in container :) - Microsoft please do something .
Josiah Berkebile commented
Have to echo this concern. In our Terraform deployment of our job orchestrator which uses Redis, all of the Azure resources get created in 5 minutes or less, and then we are left waiting for another 15-20 minutes for Redis Cache to finish coming online. It's the same for the destruction of the infrastrucutre, as well - we can destroy all of our Azure resources in under 5 minutes, except Redis Cache takes again 15-20 minutes. This really slows down development on our Terraform infrastructure scripting.
About 20 minutes to create a redis in France Central ! Please do something !
You competitor GCP in Belgium is able to start a redis instance in less than 5 minutes.
Paul Vrugt commented
this is ridiculous. Creating a redis cache as part of ARM deployment brings our deployement to a screeching halt. How can this still be an issue after more that 5 years?
Redis Cache in 2020 create in West Europe it will take approximate 35 to 40 minutes
Farukh Sharipov commented
West US still 5 years latter and I am waiting on my 27th minute for Azure Redis to be created..
Ryan Byrne (Europe) commented
France Central, standard redis cache (C1) - Just under 40 mins to deploy via Terraform.
To echo everyone else this is really hampering deployment patterns.
Alexander Trauzzi commented
These start times are unreasonable. Move this service to linux and pass down some savings. I do not understand why you would run redis on Windows?!
Oskar Kirmis commented
Europe West, same. Even the smallest instance takes at least 30-45 minutes to spin up.

At least for Redis, it might be worth to consider alternatives for the underlying OS. And I don't see why this is "under review" 5 years later :(
UK south, it took 65 minutes to deploy redis......

We understand that the Azure Cache creation time is long and that's been frustrating to you and us. Azure Cache currently runs on Windows VM's and the creation time is largely determined by how fast the underlying VM's become available on-demand. We hope that Windows server 2019 will help improve this situation. Otherwise we'll have to look at alternative VM types.
Has this even been investigated?
Even a workaround (e.g. if there are setting config values that makes a difference, or any API call for checking status beforehand) or explanation would be better than knowing it's on the backlog.
I would be surprised if you don't know more about why this is the case at this point, and it would be helpful if that information was the top MSFT post here. It's hard to go to internal clients with 'Microsoft are working on it for 4 years', even if that's a valid reason.
EDIT: 4 years, not 5. I can't count.

This is still a problem. Any updates?
