Between waves of pandemics, hurricanes, and wildfires, you don’t need cloud infrastructure adding to your list of worries this year. Fortunately, there has never been a better time to ensure your Azure deployments stay resilient. Availability zones are one of the best ways to mitigate risks from outages and disasters. With that in mind, we are announcing the preview for zone redundancy in Azure Cache for Redis.

Availability Zones on Azure

Azure Availability Zones are geographically isolated datacenter locations within an Azure region, providing redundant power, cooling, and networking. By maintaining a physically separate set of resources with the low latency from remaining in the same region, Azure Availability Zones provide a high availability solution that is crucial for businesses requiring resiliency and business continuity.

Redundancy options in Azure Cache for Redis

Azure Cache for Redis is increasingly becoming critical to our customers’ data infrastructure. As a fully managed service, Azure Cache for Redis provides various high availability options. By default, caches in the standard or premium tier have built-in replication with a two-node configuration—a primary and a replica hosting two identical copies of your data.

New in preview, Azure Cache for Redis can now support up to four nodes in a cache distributed across multiple availability zones. This update can significantly enhance the availability of your Azure Cache for Redis instance, giving you greater peace of mind and hardening your data architecture against unexpected disruption.
