Amazon ElastiCache vs Ehcache: What are the differences?

Developers describe Amazon ElastiCache as "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. On the other hand, Ehcache is detailed as "Java's Most Widely-Used Cache". Ehcache is an open source, standards-based cache for boosting performance, offloading your database, and simplifying scalability. It's the most widely-used Java-based cache because it's robust, proven, and full-featured. Ehcache scales from in-process, with one or more nodes, all the way to mixed in-process/out-of-process configurations with terabyte-sized caches.

Amazon ElastiCache belongs to "Managed Memcache" category of the tech stack, while Ehcache can be primarily classified under "Cache".

Ehcache is an open source tool with 1.33K GitHub stars and 456 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Ehcache's open source repository on GitHub.

Airbnb, Instacart, and Asana are some of the popular companies that use Amazon ElastiCache, whereas Ehcache is used by Wongnai, Nuxeo, and Insoft. Amazon ElastiCache has a broader approval, being mentioned in 349 company stacks & 79 developers stacks; compared to Ehcache, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

        What are some alternatives to Amazon ElastiCache and Ehcache?
        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 ElastiCache to run Redis, which we use as a queue through Kue.

        We use Elasticache. Both Redis and Memchached.
