Google Cloud Memorystore vs Redis Cloud: What are the differences?
What is Google Cloud Memorystore? Fully managed Redis instances by Google. Cloud Memorystore for Redis provides a fully managed in-memory data store service built on scalable, more secure, and highly available infrastructure managed by Google. Use Cloud Memorystore to build application caches that provides sub-millisecond data access. Cloud Memorystore is compatible with the Redis protocol, allowing easy migration with zero code changes.
What is Redis Cloud? Enterprise-Class Redis for Developers. Redis Cloud is a fully-managed service for running your Redis dataset. It overcomes Redis’ scalability limitation by supporting all Redis commands at any dataset size. Your dataset is constantly replicated, so if a node fails, an auto-switchover mechanism guarantees data is served without interruption.
Google Cloud Memorystore and Redis Cloud belong to "Redis Hosting" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Google Cloud Memorystore are:
- Less DevOps, More Code - Spend more time writing code that takes advantage of the power of Redis and less time managing Redis. Cloud Memorystore automates complex tasks like enabling high availability, failover, patching, and monitoring so that you can spend more time coding.
- Scale as Needed - With Cloud Memorystore for Redis, you can easily achieve the sub-millisecond latency and throughput your applications need. Start with the lowest tier and smallest size, and then grow your Redis instance effortlessly with minimal impact to application availability. Cloud Memorystore can support instances up to 300 GB and network throughput of 12 Gbps.
- Highly Available - High availability instances are replicated across two zones and provide a 99.9% availability SLA (when generally available). Instances are monitored constantly, and with automatic failover, applications experience minimal disruption.
On the other hand, Redis Cloud provides the following key features:
- Infinite scalability, all commands supported
- Auto-failover with no ops
- Highest performance, even for small datasets
According to the StackShare community, Redis Cloud has a broader approval, being mentioned in 20 company stacks & 9 developers stacks; compared to Google Cloud Memorystore, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.
