Redis Labs has experienced significant customer growth following the company's integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Redis Enterprise Cloud on AWS

The company announced continued customer growth with Redis Enterprise Cloud on AWS, with growth of 63% over the past two quarters and new integrations with AWS Outposts and HashiCorp Terraform.

In combination with Redis Enterprise's Active-Active geo-distribution technology, both integrations are designed to make it easier for companies to migrate, build, operate, and scale their applications throughout the cloud lifecycle.

Redis Enterprise Cloud on AWS is a cost-effective, fully managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) available as a hybrid and multi-cloud solution.

Built on a serverless concept, Redis Enterprise Cloud simplifies and automates database provisioning.

Users select the memory limit and throughput, and Redis Enterprise Cloud will provision the proper infrastructure and resources in a fully automated manner.

Designed for modern distributed applications, Redis Enterprise Cloud also delivers sub-millisecond performance at a virtually infinite scale, the company states.

This allows developers and operations teams to deliver intelligent, high-performance, scalable, and resilient applications faster using Redis native data structures and modern data models.

Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation

Redis Labs has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program.

AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.

This new integration will enable Redis Labs customers to run on-premise with AWS Outposts, as well as in a hybrid-cloud deployment while getting all the benefits of a fully managed Redis solution, the company states.

Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates Redis Labs as an AWS Partner with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts.

Integration with HashiCorp Terraform

The new integration with HashiCorp Terraform allows Redis Enterprise Cloud customers to better provision and manage Redis Enterprise Cloud databases alongside any cloud infrastructure resources - including with AWS services - that their application requires, all written as code.

Designed to fit the workflows modern software teams are adopting, the HashiCorp Terraform Redis Enterprise Cloud Provider makes infrastructure management predictable and reproducible, so fewer errors are made, and development can be more efficient.

As enterprises continue to make Redis Enterprise a core data platform service across the business, delivering Redis Enterprise Cloud as a provider in HashiCorp Terraform will simplify deployments, standardise configurations while giving the freedom to deploy Redis on their preferred infrastructure platform, the company states.

The HashiCorp Terraform Redis Enterprise Cloud Provider is a verified plugin approved by HashiCorp and maintained by Redis Labs.

Redis Labs a fast-growing choice

Redis Labs co-founder and CTO Yiftach Shoolman says, "Redis Enterprise Cloud is a fast-growing choice for companies to unify their global real-time data by offering unparalleled 99.999% uptime, at any scale, anywhere.

"Our customers are building, deploying, and operating applications over on-premises or hybrid-cloud. Integrating Redis Enterprise with AWS Outposts aligns with our mission to make our customers' cloud journey successful.

"Along the same path, HashiCorp Terraform makes deploying Redis databases easier, with greater consistency, and enables teams to spend more time on how Redis can solve their real-time data needs.

Amazon Web Services general manager AWS Outposts Joshua Burgin says, "Companies are modernising their infrastructure solutions to optimise every aspect of the customer experience.

"We are delighted to welcome Redis Labs to the AWS Outposts Ready Program.

"Redis Enterprise can help customers create more responsive applications on AWS Outposts, in AWS Regions, and on customer-owned hardware for a truly consistent hybrid experience."
