Redis

Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. It supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, geospatial indexes with radius queries and streams.

Add a Redis database to your application

To add a dedicated Redis instance to your existing application, simply add these lines to your configuration file:

.qovery.yml
application:
...
databases:
- type: redis
version: 6
name: my-redis
  • name: select a name for your database
  • version: choose the version of the database
  • type: the database engine (redis in this case)
