Garantia Data’s Highly Anticipated GA Changes the Way Developers Use Redis and Memcached

Garantia Data, the provider of advanced in-memory NoSQL cloud services, today announced the pricing and general availability of its Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud database hosting services. These serve as the first fully-automated, in-memory NoSQL cloud services offering reliable Memcached and infinitely-scalable Redis data store systems. Garantia Data offers a pay-as-you-go pricing model by which users are charged according to the actual size of their datasets, measured in gigabytes (GBs) per hour during a calendar month, rather than by cloud instances. This novel and simple model avoids the typical over-provisioning of expensive RAM resources and lets users pay for what they actually consume. Light users are offered a free 20MB plan, as well as multiple low-cost plans ranging from 0.1GB to 5GB, for a fixed monthly subscription fee.

Used by both enterprise developers and cutting-edge startups, Redis and Memcached are open source, RAM-based, key-value memory stores that provide significant value in a wide range of important use cases. Garantia Data’s Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud overcome Redis and Memcached limitations by delivering top performance in a highly-available, infinitely scalable, predictable and stable manner. They completely free developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, scaling, data-persistence and failure recovery, while providing true auto-scalability and instant failover.

“Garantia Data’s Redis Cloud is an awesome no-brainer,” said Chase Sechrist co-founder of Tracks.by. “Being able to spawn self-scaling Redis servers on demand gives a new way to architect your application since you can allocate resources near immediately without any ops work or suffering performance. You don't even have to configure a hash ring! We have been using the Redis Cloud in production for a few months now and believe it provides exactly the sort of functionality developers look for.”

Redis Cloud scales seamlessly and infinitely, so a Redis dataset can grow to any size while supporting all Redis commands. Memcached Cloud offers a storage engine and full replication capabilities to standard Memcached. Both provide true high-availability, including instant failover without human intervention. In addition, they run a dataset on multiple CPUs and use advanced techniques to maximize performance at any dataset size.

“We are excited to be the first to offer significant added value to open-source Redis and Memcached at affordable prices,” said Ofer Bengal, CEO of Garantia Data. “During our free beta, we saw a great demand for scalable, highly available and fully-automated Redis and Memcached; we used that eight-month period to improve our services and test them in hundreds of real-world scenarios and use cases. We’ve already endured four AWS outages without losing a single byte of customer data, so we are confident we will be able to continue offering a stable and reliable service to clients as we switch to general availability.”

Pricing & Availability

Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud are available on AWS (U.S. East and EU (Ireland) West regions) and Windows Azure (U.S. East and U.S. West regions). Typical monthly subscriptions (Redis Cloud on AWS-U.S.-East) run from $8 for a 0.1GB plan to $375 for a 5GB plan. For a complete price list please visit http://garantiadata.com/pricing. The Redis Cloud service is also available as an add-on on the Heroku, Appfog and AppHarbor platforms-as-a-service. For relevant price information, please visit the add-ons sections of these providers.

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
