Create a cache in Azure Redis Cache

Updated: September 23, 2014

This topic provides a walkthrough of creating a cache for Azure Redis Cache.

  1. Caches in Azure Redis Cache are created and managed in the Azure Management Portal Preview. To create a cache in Azure Redis Cache, log into the Azure Management Portal Preview.

    noteNote
    To use Azure Redis Cache, you need an Azure account. If you don’t have one, you can create a free trial account in just a couple of minutes. For details, see Azure Free Trial.

  2. In the Azure Management Portal Preview, click New, Redis Cache.

    • In Dns name, enter a subdomain name to use for the cache endpoint. The endpoint must be a string between six and twenty characters, contain only lowercase numbers and letters, and must start with a letter.

    • Use Pricing Tier to select the desired cache size and features. Azure Redis Cache is available in the following two tiers.

      • Basic – single node, multiple sizes up to 53 GB.

      • Standard – Two node Master/Slave, 99.9% SLA, multiple sizes up to 53 GB.

      noteNote
      For more information, see Azure Redis Cache pricing.

    • For Subscription, select the Azure subscription that you want to use for the cache.

    • In Resource group, select or create a resource group for your cache.

      noteNote
      For more information about resource groups, see Using Resource groups to manage your Azure resources.

    • Use Geolocation to specify the geographic location in which your cache is hosted. For the best performance, Microsoft strongly recommends that you create the cache in the same region as the cache client application.

  4. Once the new cache options are configured, click Create. It can take a few minutes for the cache to be created. To check the status, you can monitor the progress on the startboard. After the cache has been created, your new cache has a Running status and is ready for use with default settings.
