    It has now been more than 4 years that this item is in the backlog. I realize that this might be of relatively low priority compared with other problems in the Azure ecosystem, but surely 4 years is enough time for someone to take a look and give us a quick update.

    Can't believe this is still "under review"... This resource juste takes forever to spin up...

    4 years is not enough time to fix this issue, Microsoft likes to take their time to fix issues, analyze the problem, they can't rush things cause customers can wait, and then on a Sunday morning, when no one cares any longer about the issue, because something better came along and redis is outdated, bam that's when they will fix it, props to Microsoft for teaching me a great business model

    Ridiculous that this is still an issue. Infrastructure provisioning that would otherwise take about 3 minutes end up taking 20+ while they wait for Redis.

    How long will this issue be ignored ?!

    20 minutes to create a redis cache while creating two new web app with SQL server and database take around 3 min.

    Microsoft really needs to stop ignoring this.

    I'm also interested in the status. We use Redis Cache at various clients, and the deployment is incredibly slow. Especially compared to many other Azure services. This needs to be improved.

    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.

    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

    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.
