  • Question

  • Does it exist an "Azure Redis Cache"-simulator that I can run locally on my test and developer machines?

  • As long as you just want to test some simple functionality, you can run the opensource redis-server software

    https://redis.io/

    on your test and developer machines. It runs on Linux, but there is also a Windows port here (it is a little out of date)

    https://github.com/MSOpenTech/Redis

    This will give you a good simulation of redis's basic functionality, but it probably won't give you an acceptably good simulation of Azure redis for load-testing purposes - I would recommend load-testing in the real cloud.
