Overview of Redis Enterprise VPC (RV)

Redis Enterprise VPC (RV) delivers a cost-effective, fully managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) offering hosted on your Cloud account. RV is based on the proven Redis Enterprise technology, serving thousands of customers of our Redis Enterprise Cloud and Redis Enterprise Software products. With RV, you can deploy quickly on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and create Redis databases that are fully compatible with the open-source Redis databases contained solely in your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).


Infinite and seamless scalability

Grow your dataset to any size needed (beyond the largest cloud instances) without any downtime or limitation of Redis commands. We will automatically add or remove instances to your cluster to accommodate your fluctuating dataset size without any interruption to your applications.

Significant Cost Saving

For datasets larger than 500GB, running Redis on Flash delivers high throughput with the same sub-millisecond latencies of Redis on RAM, while cutting the cost of your cloud resources by over 70%.

True high-availability

Achieve high availability for your Redis databases, with continuous operation, no human intervention and zero operational effort. Redis Labs’ proven technology provides true high availability for Redis deployments, safeguarding against all possible failure scenarios by utilizing efficient diskless in-memory replication across racks, zones, datacenters, and regions; instant automatic failover; persistence (AOF or snapshot); backups and disaster recovery.

Predictable high performance

Take advantage of the best performance in the industry using Redis Enterprise Technology that enhances Redis with numerous optimizations and hosts your database on optimal cloud instances.

Hybrid deployment and geo-region replication

Efficiently replicate Redis databases between Redis Enterprise VPC and Redis Enterprise Software or across cloud regions, with built-in compression and WAN optimization technologies. Create multi-region, multi-cloud or hybrid (on-premises and cloud) Redis Enterprise Deployments that accelerate your applications and require zero time to recover.

24/7 Monitoring & support

Reap benefits from the tremendous operational expertise of the team that develops and maintains open-source Redis and the professionals who manage hundreds of thousands of Redis databases daily. Enjoy our 24/7 support via online helpdesk or phone.

Encryption & authentication

Meet your security goals without compromising performance using RV’s fully encrypted SSL connections, and apply multi-level authentication mechanisms such as:

  • IP whitelist
  • Client-based SSL authentication
  • Redis password
  • Data at rest encryption for compliance and security

Fully-automated service

Forget instances, clusters, scaling, data persistence/high availability settings and failure recovery.

Multiple dedicated databases in one plan

Utilize multiple databases in a single cluster, each running in a dedicated process and in a non-blocking manner.

Email alerts

Receive instant notifications when memory or connection limits are exceeded, or latency, high throughput or low throughput thresholds are crossed.

Unlimited database connection

Use as many database connections as you want.
