Heroku Redis vs Redis Cloud: What are the differences?
Developers describe Heroku Redis as "Reliable and powerful Redis as a service". Heroku Redis is an in-memory key-value data store, run by Heroku, that is provisioned and managed as an add-on. Heroku Redis is accessible from any language with a Redis driver, including all languages and frameworks supported by Heroku. On the other hand, Redis Cloud is detailed as "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.
Heroku Redis and Redis Cloud can be primarily classified as "Redis Hosting" tools.
Ztory, Cronofy, and Rocksbox are some of the popular companies that use Redis Cloud, whereas Heroku Redis is used by Big Interview, Organize, and Singu. Redis Cloud has a broader approval, being mentioned in 20 company stacks & 9 developers stacks; compared to Heroku Redis, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.
