Databases are the heart of any Redis Cloud subscription.

Here’s how to perform a variety of tasks:

Common database tasks

Configuration details

These topics provide background details that can help you tailor your databases to better fit your needs.

  • Clustering Redis databases: Redis Cloud uses clustering to manage very large databases (25 GB and larger). Learn how to manage clustering and how to use hashing policies to manage the process.

  • Data eviction policies: Data eviction policies control what happens when new data exceeds the memory limits of a database. Learn the available policies and how to control them.

  • Data persistence: Data persistence enables recovery in the event of memory loss or other catastrophic failure. Learn which options are available and how to apply specific settings to individual databases.

  • High availability and replication: Replication allows for automatic failover and greater fault tolerance. It can prevent data loss in the event of a hardware or zone failure. Learn which options are available for Redis Cloud subscriptions.


Although Redis Cloud follows open source Redis specifications, it does not support certain commands. Instead of using these commands, Redis Cloud automatically handles features like replication and lets you manage your database from the Redis Cloud console or Redis Cloud REST API.
