Redis Enterprise

Enterprise customers are eager to experience the benefits of the new Redis Enterprise tiers including the support of Redis 6.0, four nines SLA, Redis on Flash, and Redis modules

Today, Redis Labs announced the new fully integrated tiers of Redis Enterprise on Microsoft Azure Cache for Redis are available now in public preview. The new Redis Enterprise tiers bring advanced functionality to Azure Cache, benefiting Azure-based customers like BioCatch, who are already leveraging Redis Enterprise for improved developer productivity and enhanced operational resiliency with their applications.

The new Enterprise tiers offer developers expanded use cases to leverage the performance of Redis, security, and an attractive total cost of ownership. Additionally, the Enterprise tiers are natively integrated with Azure portal and billing systems, allowing Azure customers to consume Redis Enterprise like any other Azure Cache tier and using their existing commit to Azure.

With today’s release, Azure customers have access to:

  • Redis 6.0, the most recent release offering new security and operational capabilities
  • 99.99% availability with Azure’s Multi-AZ deployment
  • Scaling to multi-terabyte datasets with up to 70% memory cost reduction with Redis on Flash’s intelligent memory tiering
  • New capabilities with Redis modules:
    • RediSearch – enables users to seamlessly index, query, and search in their existing Redis datasets at the speed of Redis
      • RedisTimeSeries – allows for real-time monitoring, filtering and IoT use cases with native integration with Grafana
      • RedisBloom – includes a set of probabilistic data-structures to support use cases like ad-serving, authentication, and leaderboards with a fraction of the memory footprint
