NoSQL cloud provider announces general availability and pricing of Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud hosting services; company validates innovative approach with thousands of early-stage users and managed databases
SANTA CLARA, Calif., February 14, 2013
Garantia Data, the provider of advanced in-memory NoSQL cloud services, today announced the pricing and general availability of its Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud database hosting services. These serve as the first fully-automated, in-memory NoSQL cloud services offering reliable Memcached and infinitely-scalable Redis data store systems. Garantia Data offers a pay-as-you-go pricing model by which users are charged according to the actual size of their datasets, measured in gigabytes (GBs) per hour during a calendar month, rather than by cloud instances. This novel and simple model avoids the typical over-provisioning of expensive RAM resources and lets users pay for what they actually consume. Light users are offered a free 20MB plan, as well as multiple low-cost plans ranging from 0.1GB to 5GB, for a fixed monthly subscription fee.
Used by both enterprise developers and cutting-edge startups, Redis and Memcached are open source, RAM-based, key-value memory stores that provide significant value in a wide range of important use cases. Garantia Data’s Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud overcome Redis and Memcached limitations by delivering top performance in a highly-available, infinitely scalable, predictable and stable manner. They completely free developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, scaling, data-persistence and failure recovery, while providing true auto-scalability and instant failover.
“Garantia Data’s Redis Cloud is an awesome no-brainer,” said Chase Sechrist co-founder of Tracks.by. “Being able to spawn self-scaling Redis servers on demand gives a new way to architect your application since you can allocate resources near immediately without any ops work or suffering performance. You don't even have to configure a hash ring! We have been using the Redis Cloud in production for a few months now and believe it provides exactly the sort of functionality developers look for.”
Redis Cloud scales seamlessly and infinitely, so a Redis dataset can grow to any size while supporting all Redis commands. Memcached Cloud offers a storage engine and full replication capabilities to standard Memcached. Both provide true high-availability, including instant failover without human intervention. In addition, they run a dataset on multiple CPUs and use advanced techniques to maximize performance at any dataset size.
“We are excited to be the first to offer significant added value to open-source Redis and Memcached at affordable prices,” said Ofer Bengal, CEO of Garantia Data. “During our free beta, we saw a great demand for scalable, highly available and fully-automated Redis and Memcached; we used that eight-month period to improve our services and test them in hundreds of real-world scenarios and use cases. We’ve already endured four AWS outages without losing a single byte of customer data, so we are confident we will be able to continue offering a stable and reliable service to clients as we switch to general availability.”
