Creating Databases on Redise Cloud (RC)

Once you have a subscription, creating a Redis database in Redise Cloud is simple with the steps below.

Note: You can have as many databases as you desire, up to the limit of your subscription or the subscription plan size, whichever comes first.

  1. Select Databases from the top right menu in Redise Cloud.
  2. Click on the plus sign to add a database to a subscription.
  3. Enter a Database Name that is up to 40 characters long. (Required)
  4. If this database is created in a standard subscription, choose to enable or disable Replication (default is “on”). Replication enables instant failover by keeping a standby, in-memory replica. By enabling this feature, your database will consume twice as much memory in your subscription.
  5. Select your preferred Data Persistence option.
  6. In Pay-as-You-Go subscriptions, you will see Database Clustering as an option.
  7. Enter a password if you would like to secure your database. This is highly recommended.
  8. Enter a Source IP/Subnet that you would like to require source traffic (i.e. your application server) to come from.
  9. If your subscription is in AWS, add the pre-existing AWS Security Groups that you would like to use.
  10. If you have contacted support to enable SSL/TLS certificates, you can add SSL Client Authentication to your database here. For specific information on this process, see Securing Redise Cloud Connections with SSL/TLS.
  11. For more advanced options, click on “More Options.”
  12. Choose a Data Eviction Policy or accept the default.
  13. If you would like periodic backups of your database, enter the path to storage here. For specific information visit Configuring Database Backups for Redise Cloud.
  14. You can add Alert Settings for your database so that you and your team can be alerted when thresholds are passed.
  15. Click “Activate.”

Once activated, the screen presents detailed information as the system is creating the database. There are two things you are looking for on this page:

  • The orange spinning icon on the top right to turn to a green checkmark
  • The Endpoint issued for the new database
