Redis Labs Launches Redis Cloud in Two New AWS Regions: Tokyo and Sydney

Commercial Redis provider continues to support growing demand for its enterprise-class Redis

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 23, 2014

Redis Labs (, the leading commercial Redis provider, today announced the launch of its Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud services in the AWS Tokyo and Sydney regions. Developers using AWS to build applications for countries such as Japan, Australia, and New Zealand can now enhance their apps with fully managed, infinitely scalable, and highly available Redis.

Redis is an in-memory NoSQL database that took the developer community by storm. Being the fastest data store available today, it is used wherever high performance is required, such as in social, gaming, advertising and real-time analytics applications.

"The vision of Redis is to offer superfast read and write capabilities," said Ofer Bengal, CEO and co-founder of Redis Labs. "To reach this vision, it is critical that Redis databases be deployed in the same datacenter as the user’s app servers. By adding the Tokyo and Sydney to our cloud offerings, we’re enabling our customers in these regions to exploit the full potential of Redis."

Redis Cloud offers developers:

  • Infinite scalability. Datasets can grow to any size in a fully automated manner.
  • High availability. Datasets can be replicated within a data center or across datacenters, with an auto failover mechanism that guarantees the database is always up and running.
  • Stable top performance. Each dataset is processed by multiple cores and on the strongest cloud machines to guarantee the best performance.
  • Zero management and 24/7 support. Datasets are fully managed and supported by our team of Redis experts.

Redis Labs spent over twenty person-years developing its Redis technology, and with the company’s support team of Redis experts, it provides the best hosted Redis environment in the industry.
