Private Preview: Redis Enterprise On Azure Cache For Redis


At the recently held RedisConf 2020 Takeaway, Redis Labs announced a new partnership with Microsoft to deliver Redis Enterprise as fully integrated tiers of Azure Cache for Redis.

The new service offering is now available in Private Preview.

It is aimed at unlocking the power of Redis for Azure customers’ mission-critical workloads through advanced, enterprise-grade functionality, including Redis on Flash, modules, and, in the future, the ability to create an active geo-redundant cache for hybrid-cloud architectures.

According to the company, the new enterprise offering on Azure Cache for Redis will improve developer productivity, offer greater operational resilience, and increase peace of mind for companies migrating their databases from on-premise infrastructure to operating fully in the public cloud.

As Ofer Bengal, CEO and co-founder at Redis Labs, puts it, “The new enterprise tiers of Azure Cache for Redis fulfills the desire we hear from customers for a fully managed cloud data store that provides significant cost savings for large datasets and the greatest simplicity to consume Redis Enterprise with the confidence and resilience they need from their data layer as they move to Azure.”

Specifically, customers will be able to use the most up-to-date version of Redis including its native data structures, probabilistic data structures, streams, time-series, and search data models; and also deploy a Redis cluster within minutes and scale to terabyte-sized data sets at the cost of a disk-based datastore by utilizing Redis on Flash technology.

In addition, customers will also benefit from Enterprise-grade SLAs, offering additional uptime through Redis Enterprise’s active geo-replication technology. Customers can reduce their total cost of ownership by scaling how much Redis they need in real-time with consumption-based pricing, the company added.
