Date 2014/8/19 9:56:05 | Topic: Product News

Rackspace announced the addition of Redis to ObjectRocket,™ its managed data service. ObjectRocket for Redis simplifies application development by providing instant-on, high performance, highly available Redis instances.
"Redis in production shouldn't be a do-it-yourself proposition," said Chris Lalonde, senior director of product at ObjectRocket by Rackspace. "With ObjectRocket for Redis, we are giving developers the same pain relief we've provided with ObjectRocket for MongoDB. We monitor, manage and support the database so developers can focus on building their applications."

Key features of ObjectRocket for Redis include:
* High Availability - Every instance comes automatically configured with a secondary node and free backups. Should a primary node fail, the system seamlessly fails over to the secondary node.
* Fully Managed Service with 24x7 Expert Support - ObjectRocket for Redis is backed by Redis specialists 24x7x365 who proactively monitor and fix infrastructure issues, assist with data migrations and fine-tune Redis configurations. These specialists can also provide architecture advice and data best practices.
* Simplified Operations - One click provisioning, standardized configurations and advanced administration capabilities make it easy for developers to focus on building their product while leaving the tasks of maintaining, scaling and supporting Redis to the experts.
* High Performance - Optimized specifically for Redis, ObjectRocket for Redis uses a containerized approach that eliminates the noisy neighbor issues associated with traditional virtualization. Like all of the company's offerings, ObjectRocket for Redis was built from the ground up for performance, from the network to the OS to Redis itself. ObjectRocket for Redis was designed holistically to provide the best possible performance.
* High Bandwidth - By directly peering with multiple networks, it doesn't matter where customers host their application -- ObjectRocket for Redis is only a few milliseconds away. So customers can host their applications where they want and leave the database work to ObjectRocket.
