Memorystore is GCP’s service that helps to build blazingly fast applications. Memorystore is a Fully manages in-memory service. It can automate complex tasks simultaneously providing top-notch security by integrating IAM protocols without increasing application latency.
Features of Memorystore
The following are the principal feature of GCP’s Memorystore:
- Provisioning: It handles the complex task of provisioning an entire hybrid system.
- Replication: It also automates the tedious task of replication.
- Fail-over: It handles Code and Conditional fail-overs.
- Patching: It supports patching of the existing application.
This helps the developers to spend more time coding rather on the logistics of the system.
It comes in various sizes to fit our business needs and integrates seamlessly to our applications, including the operation sweep making it easier to monitor our instances. it also supports an import-export system so we can easily migrate your instance without any code changes.

The data in the MemoryStore are protected from the internet using VPC networks and Private IDs (PI).
For all the reasons discussed earlier MemoryStore is a perfect choice for caching, session management, gaming, stream processing, and more. This helps create a blazing fast application at a low cost.
