Redis Features

Redis is an open source, key-value database built with an in-memory design that emphasizes speed. It has support for rich data types, atomic operations, and Lua scripting.

Managed Database Cluster Features

  • Automatic updates. You can select a weekly date and time during which the database checks and applies updates to its operating system and engine to keep the service stable and secure.

  • End-to-end security. Encrypts data at rest with LUKS and in transit with SSL.

  • Cluster metrics and alerting. Cluster metrics visualizations help you monitor the performance of the nodes in a database cluster, like resource usage, to guide capacity planning and optimization. Alert policies notify you when a metric rises above or falls below a threshold you set, like high CPU or low memory.

Redis Features

  • Database metrics. Redis-specific performance metrics help you assess the health of the database, pinpoint performance bottlenecks, and identify unusual use patterns that may indicate an application bug or security breach.

  • Eviction policies. Redis’s data eviction policies let you choose how Redis evicts data when the database hits its size limit. You can customize the eviction policy in the control panel or via the API.
