Redis Pricing

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.

There are two kinds of database cluster plans you can choose from: single node clusters and high availability clusters.

  • Single node clusters begin at $15.00 per month for a single node cluster with 1 GiB of RAM. Single node clusters are not highly available, but they feature automatic failover. We recommend these clusters for preliminary development and testing.

  • High availability clusters begin at $30.00 per month for a 2 GiB RAM/1 vCPU primary node with at least one $30.00 per month matching standby node for automatic failover.

    You can add or remove standby nodes at any time. Other features, like point-in-time recovery and read-only nodes, vary by database engine. Learn more about feature availability.

Traffic to and from Managed Databases does not count against your bandwidth billing transfer allowance.

Machine Type

All managed databases are deployed onto Droplets. You can choose to deploy your managed database on a Droplet with a CPU that is shared with other DigitalOcean users, or deploy it on a machine with a dedicated CPU.

Learn more about shared CPU vs. dedicated CPU and the best use cases for each kind of plan in Choosing the Right Droplet Plan.

Machine Type CPU vCPUs Memory
Basic Shared 1 - 8 1 - 16 GB RAM
Memory-Optimized Dedicated 2 - 32 16 - 256 GB RAM
General Purpose and Storage-Optimized Droplets are not currently available for Redis clusters.
