Microsoft Redis Azure

Rapidly Build and Deploy Modern Applications with Redis Enterprise
on Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Redis Azure Today we rely on instant access to digital products and services. To successfully compete, enterprises need to rapidly deliver innovative applications that provide the real-time digital experiences their customers have come to expect. In addition, more and more enterprises are shifting towards leading cloud services and recognizing the many advantages of microservices architectures. To overcome these challenges, enterprises are leveraging cloud-native multi-model databases that can support a variety of use cases, while operating at sub-millisecond response time in a highly reliable and scalable manner with instant Redis delivery.

Enterprises around the world rely on Microsoft® Azure™ to provide trusted cloud services for running their mission critical applications on hybrid and fully cloud-based IT architectures. Azure empowers developers with the freedom to build, manage and deploy modern applications on a massive and highly secure global network using a wide array of tools and frameworks.

Microsoft and Redis Labs have partnered to deliver Redis Enterprise, a powerful multi-model database, to help enterprises rapidly develop and confidently deploy their mission critical real-time applications on Azure. Redis Enterprise on Azure extends open source Redis with multi-model capabilities (including support for document, graph and search use cases), stable high performance, seamless cost-effective scaling, and unmatched high availability. It also relieves enterprises from the complexities of infrastructure operations and database management, allowing them to focus on delivering innovative application features to their customers.

Empower your Developers with The Freedom to Build

Advanced features and multi-model capabilities make Redis Enterprise an ideal choice for developers building modern applications on Azure. It can be used for a variety of real-time application use cases including user session stores, high speed transactions, caching, real-time analytics, fast data ingest, messaging, job and queue management, geospatial search, recommendation engines, time-series and many more. Redis Enterprise on Azure spans across all verticals with a strong appeal to leading retail, financial services, media, social, and gaming companies modernizing critical applications to deliver instant experiences to their end users.

  • Multiple dedicated databases — utilize multiple databases in a single cluster, each running as a dedicated process and in a non-blocking manner
  • Predictable high performance at linear scale, delivering millions of ops/sec at sub-millisecond latencies
  • Enhanced security with built-in TLS/SSL encryption for data in transit, to defend against attacks, vulnerabilities and malicious activity
  • Speed up development using any of Redis’ 150 clients in over 50 programming languages and versatile data structures: strings, bitmaps, bit field, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets, geospatial indexes, hyperloglog, and streams
  • Extend the capabilities of Redis with your own custom modules and built-in Redis Enterprise modules such as RediSearch, RedisGraph, RedisJSON, RedisML and RedisBloom

Built-in High Availability to Overcome The Toughest Outage Scenarios

Cloud applications are increasingly being used for critical data that must remain highly available. Considering that the average Redis instance handles 100,000 operations per second, even one minute of downtime can bring an entire system to its knees.

Redis Enterprise was built from the ground up to safeguard your application with full resilience to every type of failure scenario including process failure, node failure, complete data center outage or a network split event.

Full-proof, high availability:

  • Fully automated Redis Enterprise database operations on Microsoft Azure
  • Enterprise-ready database with automated zero-downtime scaling without any interruption to your application
  • Active-Active geographic distribution (CRDTs) delivers strong eventual consistency, local latency and global availability with reads/writes in multiple regions to the same dataset
  • Cross-datacenter/region/cloud in-memory replication & policy-driven persistence
  • Instant failure detection & failover, backups (including to Azure Blob Storage), and disaster recovery for full resilience
  • Create resilient multi-region, multi-cloud or hybrid architectures
