Redis Enterprise Software product lifecycle fully reflects our subscription agreement. However, for any discrepancy between the two policies, the subscription agreement prevails.

Redis Enterprise modules follow the modules lifecycle.

Release numbers

Redis uses a four-place numbering scheme to designate released versions of its products. The format is “Major1.Major2.Minor-Build”.

  • Major sections of the version number represents fundamental changes and additions in capabilities to Redis Enterprise Software. The Major1 and Major2 part of the version number are incremented based on the size and scale of the changes in each release.
  • The Minor section of the version number represents quality improvements and fixes to existing capabilities. We increment the minor number when many quality improvements are added to the release.
  • Build number is incremented with any changes to the product. Build number is incremented with each build when any change is made to the binaries.

Redis Enterprise Software typically gets two major releases every year but the product shipping cycles may vary.

End-of-life schedule

End-of-Life for a given Major release occurs 18 months after the formal release of that version.
