Redis is Google Cloud Ready

Redis recently announced its achievement of the Google Cloud Ready designation for CloudSQL and AlloyDB. Cloud SQL is Google Cloud’s fully managed relational database service for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server. AlloyDB for PostgreSQL is Google Cloud’s newest fully managed PostgreSQL-compatible database service. This designation signifies that Redis’ solution has met the certification guidelines and has been validated by Google, following a collaborative effort with Google’s engineering teams.

The Google Cloud Ready program designation is a significant milestone that enables enterprises to adopt modern cloud-native solutions tailored to their specific requirements. Google’s Cloud databases solutions like CloudSQL and AlloyDB empower organizations to run various workloads for web apps, content management systems and those that demand hybrid transactional and analytical processing. 

Redis Cloud is widely used across the Google Cloud customer base for many purposes, including real-time transactions, chat/messaging, gaming leaderboards, healthcare claims processing, real-time inventory, geospatial applications, and media streaming. As an in-memory database, Redis Cloud consistently delivers exceptional performance, handling millions of operations per second with sub-millisecond latency. This makes Redis Cloud an ideal complement to many of Google Cloud’s managed services, enhancing real-time user experiences.

Using Redis With Google Cloud

To illustrate the benefits of Redis in conjunction with Google’s Cloud databases, we have compared a traditional implementation of the solution without Redis to one that incorporates Redis. This comparison highlights the advantages that Redis brings and showcases the typical use cases that can benefit from its integration.

In the architecture above, Cloud SQL is used by applications for reads and writes. The data persisted in Cloud SQL is then leveraged by Big Query for analytics. While this architecture offers essential functionality, enterprises can further enhance their capabilities by incorporating Redis in conjunction with the services. 

Integration enables enterprises to leverage the following advantages:

  • Blazing Fast Sub-Millisecond Latency: By integrating Redis, enterprises can achieve exceptional performance with sub-millisecond latency. This ensures that real-time experiences are delivered to customers, enabling fast response times for critical operations.
  • Extremely High Resiliency: Redis Cloud provides enterprises with a highly resilient infrastructure, offering 5-9’s of availability. This level of reliability ensures that the system remains operational even in the face of potential disruptions, minimizing downtime and ensuring uninterrupted service.

The architecture shown above uses Redis Cloud and Redis Data Integrator (RDI) as a caching pattern allowing the apps to persist and access data in real time. This is applicable to a wide range of use cases including just-in-time fulfillment, and dynamic pricing, credit card transactions and more.

Fast, Resilient for Great User Experiences

By combining Redis Cloud with Google Cloud databases, enterprises can unlock the potential for real-time experiences, leveraging the lightning-fast performance and robust resilience provided by Redis. This integration empowers organizations to deliver exceptional user experiences while harnessing the power of Google Cloud’s database services for data storage and analytics.

Redis achieving the Google Cloud Ready designation for Cloud SQL, AlloyDB provides the assurance to customers that Redis met the key certification and validation prerequisites. This achievement further solidifies the ongoing partnership between Redis and Google Cloud, as they collaborate to unlock valuable integrations that deliver optimal results while reducing total ownership costs.
