Introduction

Azure Cache for Redis is based on the popular software Redis. It is typically used as a cache to improve the performance and scalability of systems that rely heavily on backend data-stores. Performance is improved by temporarily copying frequently accessed data to fast storage located close to the application. This fast storage is located in-memory with Azure Cache for Redis instead of being loaded from disk by a database.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp Azure integration and discover the Azure service, go to Azure Integration Discovery Profile and select Redis Cache.
