Amazon ElastiCache vs Jewelry Store

This article explains about what Amazon ElastiCache is, how it works, its flavours and benefits in lay-person's perspective.


As usual, before we move into this article, I would like to set your mind on a specific analogy.

Lets assume that you and your fiance are going to buy wedding rings for your wedding. The Jewelry store will have wedding rings of all designs. They normally stock up in store shelf, the rings with most popular designs and models or a celebrity ring design that has been sought after by many customers. They also know that many customers visit the store for occasions like wedding, birthdays etc. During festival seasons, the store will need to gear up to handle huge crowds to buy gifts.
