Customize the maintenance window for automatic software updates to your database cluster.

Organize Redis databases clusters with tags to group and filter databases or create monitoring alert policies for multiple databases at once.

Redis Management

Access and understand performance metrics for nodes in a database cluster.

Cluster Infrastructure

Add standby nodes to new or existing Redis database clusters for high availability.
Configure alert policies based on database cluster performance metrics.

Cluster Management

Increase the size of your database cluster to accommodate your data needs.
