Application Cache Performance Product Evaluation: Azure Cache for Redis
Applications and their performance requirements have evolved dramatically in today’s landscape. The cloud enables enterprises to differentiate and innovate with APIs and microservices at a rapid pace. Cloud providers, like Azure, allow microservice endpoints to be cloned and scaled in a matter of minutes. The cloud offers elastic scalability compared to on-premises deployments, enabling faster server deployment and application development and less costly compute. In this paper, we reveal the results of application performance testing we completed both with and without Azure Cache for Redis on top of Azure SQL Database and Azure Database for PostgreSQL.
