Amazon ElastiCache vs Azure Storage: What are the differences?

Amazon ElastiCache: Deploy, operate, and scale an in-memory cache in the cloud. ElastiCache improves the performance of web applications by allowing you to retrieve information from fast, managed, in-memory caches, instead of relying entirely on slower disk-based databases. ElastiCache supports Memcached and Redis; Azure Storage: Reliable, economical cloud storage for data big and small. Azure Storage provides the flexibility to store and retrieve large amounts of unstructured data, such as documents and media files with Azure Blobs; structured nosql based data with Azure Tables; reliable messages with Azure Queues, and use SMB based Azure Files for migrating on-premises applications to the cloud.

Amazon ElastiCache can be classified as a tool in the "Managed Memcache" category, while Azure Storage is grouped under "Cloud Storage".

Some of the features offered by Amazon ElastiCache are:

  • Support for two engines: Memcached and Redis
  • Ease of management via the AWS Management Console. With a few clicks you can configure and launch instances for the engine you wish to use.
  • Compatibility with the specific engine protocol. This means most of the client libraries will work with the respective engines they were built for - no additional changes or tweaking required.

On the other hand, Azure Storage provides the following key features:

  • Blobs, Tables, Queues, and Files
  • Highly scalable
  • Durable & highly available

"Redis" is the top reason why over 53 developers like Amazon ElastiCache, while over 18 developers mention "All-in-one storage solution" as the leading cause for choosing Azure Storage.

According to the StackShare community, Amazon ElastiCache has a broader approval, being mentioned in 342 company stacks & 79 developers stacks; compared to Azure Storage, which is listed in 82 company stacks and 42 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Amazon ElastiCache and Azure Storage?
      Redis
      Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
      Elasticsearch
      Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of storing data and searching it in near real time. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash are the Elastic Stack (sometimes called the ELK Stack).
      Memcached
      Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data (strings, objects) from results of database calls, API calls, or page rendering.
      Azure Redis Cache
      It perfectly complements Azure database services such as Cosmos DB. It provides a cost-effective solution to scale read and write throughput of your data tier. Store and share database query results, session states, static contents, and more using a common cache-aside pattern.
      MemCachier
      MemCachier provides an easy and powerful managed caching solution for all your performance and scalability needs. It works with the ubiquitous memcache protocol so your favourite language and framework already supports it.

      We decided to use MemCachier as our Memcached provider because we were seeing some serious PostgreSQL performance issues with query-heavy pages on the site. We use MemCachier for all Rails caching and pretty aggressively too for the logged out experience (fully cached pages for the most part). We really need to move to Amazon ElastiCache as soon as possible so we can stop paying so much. The only reason we're not moving is because there are some restrictions on the network side due to our main app being hosted on Heroku.

      We use Azure Blob Storage for hosting all images on the Seen on Set website. These images are then geo-cached using Azure CDN.
