Rackspace Adds ObjectRocket for Redis, Simplifies Application Development Process

By CIOReview | Wednesday, September 3, 2014

SAN ANTONIO, TX: Rackspace, a cloud company, recently announced the addition of Redis to its managed data service- ObjectRocket. Redis is an open-source, networked, in-memory, key-value data store with optional durability and this addition makes application development easier by providing instant-on, high performance, highly available Redis instances.

“Redis in production shouldn’t be a do-it-yourself proposition,” says 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 Accessibility – Each instance comes configured by design with a secondary node and free backups. The system seamlessly fails over to the secondary node, in case a primary node fails.

Fully Managed Service with 24×7×365– ObjectRocket for Redis is round the clock backed by Redis specialists who proactively watch and fix infrastructure issues, assist with data migrations and fine-tune Redis configurations, 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.

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.
