Instaclustr for Redis GA
September 21, 2020
newest addition to the Instaclustr Managed Platform enables low latency
in-memory caching, messaging, and stream processing. Redis joins Apache
Kafka, Apache Kafka Connect, Apache Cassandra, and Elasticsearch as
another fast, proven, resilient, and highly flexible open source data
technology, expertly managed and supported by Instaclustr.
Redis—the leading in-memory database—facilitates extremely low latency
in-memory applications across a broad set of use cases to drive revenue,
engagement, and productivity. By offering a series of flexible and
easy-to-use data structures, Redis enables highly responsive
applications and caching that can be deployed at different positions
inside a given architecture.
Instaclustr now offers Redis as a fully managed service, as the data
store often requires significant operational proficiency to be
efficiently deployed and optimized at scale. Instaclustr for Redis
delivers a fully managed solution enabling customers to rapidly build
in-memory, low latency solutions. Backed by Instaclustr’s hands-on
management, businesses can focus internal resources on more efficiently
building and shipping their applications while Instaclustr handles the
complexities of Redis cluster management, scaling, security, and
deployment. Redis joins the other data-layer technologies which
Instaclustr delivers in their pure open source form, giving Instaclustr
customers an advantageous and economical alternative to “open core”
solutions that increase license costs and promote vendor lock-in.
“Redis is particularly powerful open source technology, the leading
in-memory solution in the industry, and complementary to the data-layer
solutions we’re delivering as managed services to our broad customer
base,” said Ben Slater, Chief Product Officer, Instaclustr. “Adding
Redis to our list of managed technologies is something our customers
have been asking for as it’s often used alongside Apache Cassandra,
Apache Kafka or Elasticsearch and our customers wanted a Redis managed
service meeting the same high standards we set with those technologies.
We’re excited to now launch our Instaclustr for Redis solution as the
newest addition to the Instaclustr Managed Platform, and look forward to
helping new and existing customers leverage its low latency
capabilities, reliability, and scalability.”
