Configure a Redis Cluster in Amazon ElastiCache
In this lab, you’ll practice Configuring ElastiCache Redis clusters. When you’re finished with this lab, you’ll have a good understanding of scaling clusters up, down and out to meet specific business and application demands.
Terms and conditions apply.
Scale a Simple Cluster by Increasing Node Size
Reconfigure an existing ElastiCache Redis cluster by increasing the size of the primary node.
Add Additional Replica Nodes to a Redis Cluster
Reconfigure an existing ElastiCache Redis replication-enabled cluster by increasing the number of replica nodes in the single available shard.
Downgrade Redis Cluster Storage Capacity by Downsizing Node Type
You will take a backup of the related ElastiCache cluster and restore that backup into a new cluster using a smaller node type.
Increase Cluster Access Capacity by Adding a Shard to a Redis Cluster
Increasing the number of shards in a cluster will spread data over more availability zones as well as increase total read capacity for a cluster.
Provided environment for hands-on practice
We will provide the credentials and environment necessary for you to practice right within your browser.
Follow along with the author’s guided walkthrough and build something new in your provided environment!
