Instaclustr’s solutions and processes are independently audited and certified against the Service Organisation Control – Type 2 (SOC 2) standards.

These regular audits assure the security, confidentiality, integrity, privacy, and availability of your data.

Our Redis deployment is clustered horizontally by default for maximum capacity and optimal nodes sizes.

Our default configuration persists data to disk at configurable intervals to allow nodes to restart with a warm cache.

We collect and monitor hundreds of different metrics from every node we manage, so we can proactively oversee your cluster and you get easy access to the Redis metrics needed to effectively maintain your application.

The Instaclustr Managed Platform includes a Terraform Provider for our managed services. It provides a flexible set of resources for provisioning and managing Instaclustr based clusters via the use of Terraform.

If you’d like to know more you can read about the Terraform Provider on our blog, or you can dive right into the examples on GitHub.

At Instaclustr you are never locked-in because everything we do is open source. We use the open source Redis licensed under a BSD 3-Clause License.

We support both Run In Your Own Account (RIYOA) and Run In Instaclustr’s Account (RIIA) for our managed Redis service.

On our managed platform, Redis can be provisioned on AWS, GCP, and Azure and is bundled up with a host of additional features ready for enterprise deployment.

Redis Benefits

Redis is the industry-leading, in-memory database solution.

Pairing the speed of memory with fast data structures it is ideal for:

  • Fast storage
  • Intelligent caching
  • Rate limiting and traffic shaping
  • Real-time and responsive UIs
  • Location-aware apps
  • Message passing
  • Stream processing

Responsive websites and applications prevail over sluggish competitors. Redis’ sub-millisecond access speeds can be used to speed up websites, APIs, and databases with intelligent caching.

Configurable intelligent caching allows you to control which data is most important and needs the highest degree of responsiveness.

Redis’ speed and native data structures allow it to keep track of the actions of each of your users individually and control the usage of APIs, resources, or services in real-time.

Redis is built to scale horizontally to over 1000 nodes in a single cluster, making massive real-time applications possible.

Our offering starts with a default of three nodes and you can increase capacity from there.

Redis is very well documented with an easy to use interface.

Redis client libraries are available in all the major programming languages. Developers can be up and running with Redis in no time

Redis has been crowned “The Most Loved Database” in Stack Overflow’s yearly survey of developers for four years in a row.

The “loved” metric is calculated from people who are currently using Redis that plan to use it again. With speed, an elegant interface, and a versatile feature-set, what’s not to love?

Redis provides robust stream processing capabilities. Consumer groups, inspired by Apache Kafka, process tasks with acknowledgement and fail-over.

Redis is entirely open source under a BSD 3-Clause License and has a large ecosystem and wide adoption.

Still got questions about Redis and how Instaclustr can help you?

First released in 2009 Redis is the leading open source in-memory cache and database. The name Redis is derived from “Remote Dictionary Server”.

Redis is sometimes called a data structure server as many data structures and features have been added to Redis over its development.

Redis is primarily used as an intelligent caching server.

Some Redis use cases:

  • Web session store
  • Caching search results
  • Online chat and notifications
  • Game scores
  • Responsive geolocation applications
  • Stream processing
  • Rate-limiting APIs and other services

Redis is completely open source under the BSD 3-Clause license.

Instaclustr for Redis uses version 6.0.4

At Instaclustr all our technologies are designed to scale on optimally sized nodes and our managed Redis is no different in this sense. We scale Redis horizontally, with clusters beginning with three nodes.
