Redis Cache

Redis is an in-memory data structure store, used as a distributed, in-memory key–value database, cache and message broker, with optional durability. Redis supports different kinds of abstract data structures, such as strings, lists, maps, sets, sorted sets, HyperLogLogs, bitmaps, streams, and spatial indexes. This is the Redis Cache variation of our gridstore Redis database.

Redis Cache has no data persistence active. If you are looking for Redis with data persistence choose Redis Store.

Versions

We currently support Redis version 5.0.

Performance Classes

In order to fulfill your requirements for your workloads, we offer four performance classes - Standard (max. 2GB RAM), High (max. 4GB RAM), Insane (max. 8GB RAM) and Ultra (max. 16GB RAM).

CPU Limits & Autoscaling

Due to how Redis works, only one CPU will ever be used. Therefore there is no autoscaling, and you can not set CPU limits.

Security Zones

Security Zones connect your managed database service to your infrastructure, and the network configuration is completely automated. For increased security they are private networks located in a separate zone and are not connected to the public Internet, allowing your service to run encapsulated. You can either use the default Security Zone or create and name your own Zone. You also have the option to enable your servers to access the database service by connecting them to your specified Security Zone.

Service Access

Once your PaaS service has been successfully created you can have the possibility to view the Service Access section within the detailed view for your service. You have the option to include the credentials, password and/or the port. Using this section you can easily set, generate and copy several variants:

  • Connection String
  • Connection Parameters
  • Flags
  • PHP Data Object (PDO)
  • Data Source Name (DSN)

Keep in mind that you can only connect to your service from servers within the same Security Zone.
