Redis users have another reason to go with AWS. AWS ElastiCache now lets you export Redis snapshots to S3 buckets.
You can create Cache Cluster snapshots and send them to an S3 bucket within the same region as the snapshot. You will have to grant the right permissions to ElastiCache as well, such as List Upload, and View. The exported file will be a standard Redis RDB file.
This is handy for several reasons: You can use Redis snapshots for disaster recovery. You may use it as a seed for another Redis cache cluster in a different region. Finally, you can analyze the snapshot for usage patterns.
This feature is available right now for free. If you want to start employing ElastiCache in your business systems, contact our PolarSeven cloud specialists today.
