OCI Cache

Achieve submillisecond latency with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Cache, a fully managed Redis service engineered for exceptional scalability and consistent high availability. Propel your applications to perform faster and more reliably than ever.

“OCI provided us with a comprehensive suite of managed open source services—Oracle Kubernetes Engine, OCI Database with PostgreSQL, and OCI Cache—and also offered a clear roadmap and extensive support. The standout factor was OCI's cost efficiency, being less than half the cost. But our collaboration with OCI demonstrates a partnership that extends beyond technology, highlighting their support and commitment to our project's goals.”

Warren Wilbee SVP of Global Product Development, Körber Supply Chain

Why OCI Cache?

  • Simple, flexible, scalable

    OCI Cache offers a user-friendly and versatile caching solution. With it, you can adjust your cluster resources easily and precisely to meet your capacity needs rather than being constrained by rigid, fixed configurations. Our service provides the scalability necessary to seamlessly grow along with your application demands.

  • Fully managed

    Enjoy the convenience of a fully managed caching service. OCI Cache automates cluster deployment, failover, and patching processes, relieving you of the manual overhead associated with these critical tasks. Focus more on your business objectives and less on operational management.

  • Fully open

    At Oracle, we are committed to the open source community and uphold the integrity of the code we use. OCI Cache is fully compatible with Redis, the industry-leading in-memory data structure store, known for its versatility and performance. It enables you to use familiar Redis commands and leverage existing Redis workloads without any changes to your application code.

How does OCI Cache work?

OCI Cache is ideal for applications that need to deliver fast, real-time data. Leverage Cache to enhance the performance and safeguard MySQL databases from abrupt spikes in usage. OCI Cache offers a seamless way to add a protective layer in front of your application or database, boosting performance and enabling efficient control over your database instance's scalability and costs. With this fully managed service, you're free from the hassle of handling repetitive tasks, saving you time and resources.

Diagram showing how OCI Cache works, description below Diagram illustrating the data flow from users to back-end in an application using OCI Cache. Users (end user or API service) initiate requests, which are processed by the application (container, virtual machine, or application). OCI Cache enhances speed and reduces load on the central database. Data requests hit the OCI Cache first; if not found, they are retrieved from the database. Benefits include rapid processing, ideal for infrequent data changes, and reduced database load.
