Redis Enterprise Software Product Lifecycle

You can view the Redis Enterprise Software subscription agreement here. For details of the End of Life (EOL) Policy for Redis Enterprise Software, please see Software Terms PDF in the link above and look for details under “Exhibit A – Support Policy”, Section #9.

Release numbering

Redis Labs uses a four-place numbering scheme to designate released versions of its products. The format is “Major1.Major2.Minor-Build”

  • Major sections of the version number represent fundamental changes and additions in capabilities to Redis Enterprise Software. Major1 or Major2 part of the version number is incremented based on the size and scale of the changes in each release.
  • Minor section of the version number represents quality improvements and fixes to existing capabilities. We increment the minor number when many quality improvements are added to the release.
  • Build number is incremented with any changes to the product. Build number is incremented with each build when any change is made to the binaries.

Redis Enterprise Software typically gets one major and one minor release every year but the product ship cycles may vary.

End-of-Life Schedule

End-of-Life for a given release occurs eighteen (18) months after the formal release of that version.
