We are excited to announce the general availability of JSON support on the Enterprise and Enterprise Flash tiers of Azure Cache for Redis. Check out the details below to learn about the feature overview, benefits, use cases, and how to get started. And sign up for the JSON webinar on January 17th!
The benefits of leveraging these new capabilities include
Native support for JSON: No more converting JSON data to and from strings. Simplifies working with JSON data including subpart updates.
High Performance: Purpose-built using in-memory data structures to deliver performance and scalability.
Compatibility with RediSearch: RedisJSON works seamlessly with RediSearch (also available in Azure Cache for Redis) to let you index and query your JSON documents.
Enterprise-Grade: Enjoy continued operations and minimal downtime. And much more including:
Full support for the JSON standard
JSONPath syntax for selecting, updating, and reading project elements inside documents
Documents are stored as binary data in a tree structure, allowing fast access to sub-elements
Typed atomic operations for all JSON value types
Now that Redis provides native support for JSON, it expands the possibilities of the modernization of relational database management services by leveraging the benefits of Redis caching. Listed below are some scenarios on how Azure Cache for Redis Enterprise and Enterprise Flash customers have leveraged this capability to drive efficiency throughout their applications
Caching: Use Redis as a high-speed cache to store frequently accessed JSON data and manipulate sub-elements using atomic operations.
Query Accelerator: Deploy Redis as an in-memory data fabric on top of a data store(s) to accelerate queries while offloading production systems.
Product Cataloging: Quickly manage, index, and search thousands of products with different SKUs and attributes across your product catalog
