Redis is an open source, in-memory data structure store, used as database, cache and message broker.
The version currently installed by the add-on is : Redis 6.0.10
Administration with Redsmin
Each Redis add-on provides a Redsmin dashboard, which allows you to query and monitor your redis database activity.
Database Daily Backup and Retention
By default, Clever Cloud performs a free backup every day, with a retention of seven days. Retention and frequency can be customized for Premium customers.
Each backup can be found in the add-on dashboard in the web console, along with the credentials.
A backup is a
tar.gz archive containing both the
.aof files. You can extract this archive and run
redis-server in the extracted folder to access data.
Leader / follower topology
By default, all redis add-ons are configured as leaders. You can set up a redis add-on as a follower from the add-on panel (in the “Add-on information” tab). You need to set the leader information (host, port, password) to start the replication. The add-on panel will display the sync process status so that you know when the synchronisation is done.
While a redis database is configured as a follower, it’s read-only.
You can use Redis URI to connect to your databases with -u option. However, the generated URI in the information tab (
REDIS_URL) of you add-on is not a legal syntax to use
This is the correct syntax for
redis-cli URI : redis ://[email protected]:port[/database]
Default retention policy
By default, the eviction policy is
noeviction. If you plan to use Redis as a LRU cache,
please contact the support to change its policy.
