“Even running a single medium tier EC2 instance with Redis would be more expensive than using Redis Enterprise Cloud. My advice to emerging companies – spend the time thinking about the rapidly changing data in your system and at what performance you need to access it. Don’t run your own Redis servers; Redis Enterprise Cloud is pretty much a no-brainer.”
Redis Labs Delivers High Performance and High Availability At Scale
To save on operational costs, Vetr chose going to the cloud. However, finding cloud services that could scale Redis infinitely and seamlessly as needed, without downtime was impossible – until they discovered the Redis Enterprise Cloud offering from Redis Labs.

They did not have to worry about managing and operating the infrastructure needed to run it, saving them operational costs. Redis Enterprise Cloud scaled seamlessly, shielding Vetr from any operational hassles related to managing this very important persistent data layer, which is crucial to their service. With the operations completely invisible to them, their teams can now focus on development and this is extremely critical to their growing business.
