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.
