Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. It supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, geospatial indexes with radius queries and streams.

  2. Once deployed, click on the Access Tab to read the access related options

Access Your Redis Instances

You may only access your Redis Instance from services running in the same environment. Learn more about how to connect to your Redis Instance under the Access Tab.


In the near future you will be able to Tunnel from your machine to your service for easy access. Additionally, a feature to run commands directly to your redis instance via a Shell terminal will be available as well.

Redis Advanced Options

Enable Replication

Enabling replication turns on a separate endpoint for Redis readonly instances. You can enable replication under the Configurations tab when Creating a Redis service. You may not enable this after the service has been created. It's recommended to enable Replication in production environments. Read more about redis replication here.

Cost Optimization

Enabling Cost Optimization is not recommended for production environments. Cost optimization places your instances on Spot or Pre-emptible cloud instances which can incur random downtime. For best effort uptime, you must disable cost optimization.

(Storage) Persistence

Redis has an optional (Storage) Persistence and Volume Size options available under the Advanced Options Tab.
