Both Redis Enterprise Software and Redis Cloud are compatible with open source Redis (OSS Redis).

Redis contributes extensively to the open source Redis project and uses it inside of Redis Enterprise Software and Redis Cloud. As a rule, we adhere to the open source project’s specifications and update both products with the latest version of open source Redis.

RESP compatibility

Redis Enterprise Software and Redis Cloud support RESP2 and RESP3. In Redis Cloud, you can choose between RESP2 and RESP3 when you create a database and you can change it when you edit a database. For more information about the different RESP versions, see the Redis serialization protocol specification.

Compatibility with open source Redis Cluster API

Redis Cloud supports Redis OSS Cluster API on Flexible subscriptions if it is enabled for a database. Review Redis OSS Cluster API architecture to determine if you should enable this feature for your database.
