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. Redis Cache should also support persistence

    Redis supports persistence and not acting as a cache (with a LRU key eviction policy).

    I would like to be able to provision a Redis cluster that never drops data added to it.

  2. Add support for AOF persistence or smaller RDB intervals

    It should be possible to set a smaller interval for Redis snapshots (or a manually triggered one) and to choose between AOF or RDB or both for the persistence method.

  3. It should be possible to scale up pricing plan for Redis Cahce

    In the portal today I can't scale up a Redis cache instanse. I'm stuck in Standard 250 MB and I want 1 GB. Does not seem to be possible.

    My workaround now is to create a new redis cache with 1GB.

  5. Redis Cache should provide an Interface to test the Cache Failover capabilities

    I wanted to test the Redis Cache Failover scenario (with Standard edition) for an enterprise application. But with current portal there are no ways we can test this capability.

    Also would also like to test scenarios when one of the cache server is not performing well what are the heuristic defined for failing over to other node.

  6. Allow clustering of caches in different regions

    Allow me to have Redis Caches in different regions and link them together in a bi-directional sync configuration so when you add something to the cache in one region, the data gets replicated to the other caches. This keeps the cache local and fast when you're running a site in multiple regions.

    Geo-Replication is now available for use as a feature. It is released as a Preview at the moment. The replication is uni-directional at the moment.

    Geo-replication provides a mechanism for linking two Premium tier Azure Redis Cache instances. One cache is designated as the primary linked cache, and the other as the secondary linked cache. The secondary linked cache becomes read-only, and data written to the primary cache is replicated to the secondary linked cache. This functionality can be used to replicate a cache across Azure regions.

    Here is some more information: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/redis-cache/cache-how-to-geo-replication.

    We will continue to add more geo-replication scenarios. Please let us know what you’d like to see and in what priority order.

  7. Support Redis Expire Keyspace Notifications

    Receiving a callback when a key expires is currently not supported. Please add this as it provided a great way for handling session expiration.

  8. Support hyphen in cache URL

    Add support for using a hyphen in the URL for a redis cache instance. myapp-dev or myapp-test is much more aesthetically pleasing and easier to parse than myappdev or myapptest.

  9. Restart option for Azure Redis Cache

    Currently I havn't seen any UI command to Restart Azure Redis Cache Service.
    I know there is a way to shutdown and start however missing in the portal.

  10. Add integration with V2 Virtual networks

    Hello,
    Right now we have integration between classic virtual networks and Redis Cache.
    It's a very strong blocker for migration from classic to v2 model and also blocker if customer already using v2 infrastructure...

  11. Define ACL Rules for your Cache Instance

    it would be great if we could further secure our Redis instance by defining the allowed IP addresses. Typically our cache is only accessed by our IIS application server therefore there is no need for the cache to be exposed to the public internet.

    There are various things you can do now. You can deploy your cache into a VNET and have NSG rules restrict the traffic to what is desired. Please ensure to look at this so that you enable access to the required ports (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/redis-cache/cache-how-to-premium-vnet#what-are-some-common-misconfiguration-issues-with-azure-redis-cache-and-vnets).

    You can also use the firewall feature to configure firewall rules to restrict access to only certain IP addresses. You might find this (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/redis-cache/cache-configure#firewall) useful.

  12. Enable firewall for all Azure Redis Cache dedicated service pricing tiers

    Currently the Azure Redis Cache only allows the firewall to be set on premium pricing tiers. This security service should be available on all pricing tiers with a dedicated service

  13. [REQUEST] Please re-enable "retention" setting for Redis Cashe Diagnostics.

    We can't configure "retention" for Azure Redis Cache Diagnostics right now, even though we were used to configure it from Preview Portal. Please re-enable "retention" setting so that we don't need to delete logs manually.

    -Japanese-
    Redis Cache の診断ログにおいて、以前はプレビューポータルからリテンションを設定することができましたが、現在は設定することができません。利用者が手動でログを削除する必要がないようにリテンションの設定を有効化してください。

    We have added Keys counter which allows you to see the total/ expired and evicted keys as well.

  15. Take snapshots of the cache for download

    Since commands such as 'SAVE' and 'BGSAVE' are disabled on the azure redis,I was hoping to find a equivalent of this operation(save,bgsave) to take a snapshot of my data on the cache and download it for local testing or upload it a new azure cache with better plan/config since I cannot upgrade my current plan.

  16. Reboot all redis tiers on dedicated infrastructure

    Why can we only reboot premium tier instances? I get that if we're on a multi-tenant setup we can't reboot - but once we get to STANDARD tier we should be able to reboot, not just premium.

  18. Maintenance time of RedisCache server should be out of business hours in Japan

    Maintenance time of RedisCache server should be out of business hours in Japan

    The last maintenance started 0:00 UTC. That hit business start time in Japan (a.m. 09:00 JPT). The business impact was critical.
    Please plan the maintenance in Japan out of business hour in Japan considering local time.

  20. Allow management of Azure Redis Cache through REST API

    It would be good to be able to programmatically create and manage Azure Redis Caches. Example scenario: bringing up an automated test environment for a short time to test builds/applications before deployment to production space without interfering with production cache.
