New Redis Enterprise for Anthos and GKE
Among forward-looking developers, the open-source Redis in-memory data structure store is a popular option for anyone looking for a database, cache, and message broker. At Google Cloud Next 2019, Redis Labs, the home of Redis announced Redis Enterprise, a fully managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) running on Google Cloud. This week at RedisConf 2021, we are building on that collaboration to bring Redis Enterprise for Anthos and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) onto the Google Cloud Marketplace in private preview. This brings a self-managed Redis Enterprise solution for Google Cloud customers who need to run co-located apps and services in container clusters.
Anthos is built on the foundational elements of GKE. It provides a managed hybrid and multi-cloud platform for deploying, managing, and scaling containerized applications on Google Cloud, on-premises, on AWS and soon on Azure. This enables enterprise customers with heterogeneous (on-prem and cloud) environments to seamlessly orchestrate their applications estate across a broad range of deployment topologies. The addition of new Kubernetes-based data services from Redis Labs makes it easier to couple apps and data services together, allowing both to operate from a global control plane with unified billing through Google Cloud.
"As we worked to deliver a more customized and tailored experience for our customers, we needed a solution that allowed us to scale quickly with low overhead and low maintenance," said Avneendra Arun, IT Director, Belk. "With GKE and Redis Enterprise we have a flexible, cost-effective solution that has been a wonderful combination, both quick to deploy and easy to maintain."
