Namespace: Amazon.ElastiCache.Model
Assembly: AWSSDK.ElastiCache.dll
Version: 3.x.y.z


public CreateCacheClusterRequest(
         String cacheClusterId,
         Int32 numCacheNodes,
         String cacheNodeType,
         String engine,
         List<String> cacheSecurityGroupNames
Type: System.String

The node group (shard) identifier. This parameter is stored as a lowercase string. Constraints: A name must contain from 1 to 20 alphanumeric characters or hyphens. The first character must be a letter. A name cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

Type: System.Int32

The initial number of cache nodes that the cluster has. For clusters running Redis, this value must be 1. For clusters running Memcached, this value must be between 1 and 20. If you need more than 20 nodes for your Memcached cluster, please fill out the ElastiCache Limit Increase Request form at

Type: System.String

The compute and memory capacity of the nodes in the node group (shard). The following node types are supported by ElastiCache. Generally speaking, the current generation types provide more memory and computational power at lower cost when compared to their equivalent previous generation counterparts. General purpose: Current generation: T2 node types:cache.t2.micro, cache.t2.small, cache.t2.mediumM3 node types:cache.m3.medium, cache.m3.large, cache.m3.xlarge, cache.m3.2xlargeM4 node types:cache.m4.large, cache.m4.xlarge, cache.m4.2xlarge, cache.m4.4xlarge, cache.m4.10xlarge Previous generation: (not recommended) T1 node types:cache.t1.microM1 node types:cache.m1.small, cache.m1.medium, cache.m1.large, cache.m1.xlarge Compute optimized: Previous generation: (not recommended) C1 node types:cache.c1.xlarge Memory optimized: Current generation: R3 node types:cache.r3.large, cache.r3.xlarge, cache.r3.2xlarge, cache.r3.4xlarge, cache.r3.8xlarge Previous generation: (not recommended) M2 node types:cache.m2.xlarge, cache.m2.2xlarge, cache.m2.4xlargeNotes: All T2 instances are created in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). Redis (cluster mode disabled): Redis backup/restore is not supported on T1 and T2 instances. Redis (cluster mode enabled): Backup/restore is not supported on T1 instances. Redis Append-only files (AOF) functionality is not supported for T1 or T2 instances. For a complete listing of node types and specifications, see Amazon ElastiCache Product Features and Details and either Cache Node Type-Specific Parameters for Memcached or Cache Node Type-Specific Parameters for Redis.

Type: System.String

The name of the cache engine to be used for this cluster. Valid values for this parameter are: memcached | redis

Type: System.Collections.Generic.List<System.String>

A list of security group names to associate with this cluster. Use this parameter only when you are creating a cluster outside of an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
