I'm going to build a failover setup for my resque jobs system wich uses Redis as a queue. The idea is to put 3 redises in different availability zones on micro instances and replicate them. Also would be nice to use ELB/tcp for balancing and excluding failed instances(If its possible). Does any one has such experience? The main concern is that micro EC2 has inconsistent CPU, but it can be used for config servers on mongodb, so why not to put redis there? My queues aren't very big. Max amount of RAM consumed is around 40Mb and I have about 50 clients talk to the queue.

why use redis as a queue instead of Amazon SQS? –  pjz Feb 10 '12 at 15:58
    
Resque uses it, and we have application installations out of aws also, so stucking on aws service not good idea for us –  Stanislav O. Pogrebnyak Feb 10 '12 at 17:26
