From the Side Navigation, choose Caching layer -> Redis.

Redis is an open-source in-memory storage, used as a distributed, in-memory key–value database, cache and message broker, with optional durability. At Alokai, Google Cloud Platform service called Memorystore is used as a managed Redis solution.

Invalidate Cache

Clearing cache is useful after deploying a new version of your storefront. This helps you avoid situations of serving out of date page content but instead serve a freshly generated storefront content that will be cached after first next request.

This section also show the last date of cache clear so that you can keep track of the up to date state of your data.
