The key differentiator between Redis Cloud and other hosted services

Most hosted services offer standard cloud instances pre-loaded with open source Redis. This approach does not tackle the operational limitations of running Redis on the cloud and does not provide great advantage over the do-it-yourself approach.

Redis Cloud overcomes these limitations by adding a breakthrough technological layer to open source Redis, while fully supporting it. The technology virtualizes multiple cloud servers into an infinite pool of memory, consumed by users according to the actual size of their datasets.

A dataset is distributed in small chunks across multiple shards and multiple nodes, minimizing the recovery process from a node failure.

Datasets are also constantly replicated, so if a node fails, an auto-switchover mechanism guarantees data is served without interruption.

Redis Cloud supports various data persistence options without compromising on data integrity, throughput or low latency. Users can also back up their datasets to a remote persistent storage for disaster recovery purposes.

With Redis Cloud, scaling is performed automatically - the shards autonomously inflate, deflate, multiply or reduce according to the dataset size and the measured performance of each shard. A dataset can continuously grow from a few megabytes to gigabytes, terabytes and even petabytes, overcoming the Redis scalability limitation.

Redis Cloud is completely “zero touch.” A Redis database can be created in seconds, and all operations are fully-automated from that moment on.
