The Amazon ElastiCache caching service has been expanded with availability in Dublin, north California, Singapore and Tokyo.

The caching service was originally available in north Virginia in August.

According to Amazon, ElastiCache enables users to create cache clusters, each comprising one or more cache nodes, in a matter of minutes. 

Each cache cluster is a distributed,  in-memory cache that can be accessed using the Memcached protocol. More information on ElastiCloud can be found here.
