Description

ElastiCache makes it easy to set up, manage, and scale distributed in-memory cache environments in the Cloud. It provides a high performance, resizable, and cost-effective in-memory cache. It was detected that the Elasticache Memcached cluster {AwsElasticacheMemcachedCluster} is not provisioned within the AWS EC2-VPC platform. Using EC2-VPC platform instead of EC2-Classic platform increases flexibility and control over the cache clusters security, traffic routing, availability and networking infrastructure
