The obvious volatile memory choices were either Memcached or Redis. We eventually sided with Redis as it natively handled replication, and this replication fell under the PCI responsibility scope of AWS. This added duribility meant that if a redis node were to die, our downtime would be in the seconds, rather than 15 minutes which we would incur using Memcached
