Regional capacity quota

The default per-project quota for Memorystore for Redis allows you to provision 1 TB of Redis capacity in each region where the service is available.

Quota Value
Data provisioned per region 1 TB

For example, if you provision three instances in your project with 300 GB each in us-central1, you will have consumed 900 GB out of the 1  TB quota for us-central1. With the default quota, you can provision an additional 100 GB in us-central1. To request a higher quota for a region, see Regional capacity quota increases.
