On RedisConf 2020 Takeaway, Redis Labs announces a new strategic agreement with Microsoft to deliver Redis Enterprise as an integrated managed service on The Microsoft Azure Cache.
Currently, this new service is available in Private Preview, which will free Up Redis’s capabilities for mission-critical workloads for Azure customers through advanced enterprise-class features, including Redis on Flash, modules, and active-out-of-the-geo-supercache for hybrid cloud architectures in the future.
Ofer Bengal, CEO and Co-Founder of Redis Labs, said, “Azure Cache for Redis’s new enterprise tier meets what we’re hearing from our customers about the need for fully managed cloud data storage that saves a lot of money for large data sets and maximizes the use of Redis Enterprise and gets the confidence and resilience it needs from its data to the tier when migrating to Azure.” “
Julia Liuson, Vice President of Developers at Microsoft, said, “Integration with Redis Labs underscores Microsoft’s vision for a successful cloud and open source collaboration that meets the needs of developers and supports the open source ecosystem for continuous innovation.” “We believe the new enterprise tier for Redis’s Azure Cache will help companies deliver the most critical applications at scale, high availability, and low latency.” “
New enterprise products on Azure Redis Cache will increase developer productivity, provide greater operational resiliency, and make it easier for companies to migrate databases from on-premises infrastructure to companies that are fully operational in the public cloud, according to Redis Labs. Specifically, customers will benefit from:
Increase developer productivity
Use the latest version of Redis, including its native data structure, probability data structure, streams, time series, and search data model
Deploy Redis clusters in minutes and leverage Flash-based Redis technology to scale to TB-class datasets at the expense of disk-based data storage
Familiar experience with Redis cache and Redis interface management allows developers to start using the service immediately
Native integration with other Azure services for seamless development
Increased resiliency, security and compliance
Enterprise-class SLa, provides additional uptime with Redis Enterprise’s active geo-replication technology
Support for network isolation
Simplify procurement and billing
Customers can reduce total cost of ownership by scaling the number of Redis they need in real time through consumption-based pricing
Redis Enterprise Consumer has become part of your customer’s monthly Azure bill
