Upgrade plan

Each Redis Cloud Essentials plan provides a variety of benefits, including increased memory and number of connections. For a comparison of available plans, see Redis Cloud Essentials plans.

When you change your plan, your data and endpoints are not disrupted.

If you upgrade a free plan to a paid plan, you need to add a payment method.

If you change your subscription to a lower plan, make sure your data fits within the limits of the new plan; otherwise, the change attempt will fail.

As of January 2024, new and upgraded Redis Cloud Essentials subscriptions are limited to one database per subscription. If you have a Redis Cloud Essentials subscription created before January 2024, you can add databases up to the previous plan limit. If you choose to upgrade your plan, you can keep your databases, but you will need to create a new subscription to add another database.

Change high availability

To change your plan's high availability settings, select the desired setting in the High availability panel.

Use the High availability panel to set Essentials subscription replication settings.

You can switch between No replication and Single-zone replication at any time, but you cannot choose Multi-zone replication after your subscription is created. You also cannot switch from Multi-zone replication to another high availability option.

Change payment method

To change your subscription payment method, update the Credit card settings. You can select a known payment method from the drop-down list or use the Add button to add a new one.

Use the Credit card drop-down to set your subscription payment method.

Payment method changes require the Owner role. If your sign-on is not a subscription owner, you cannot change the payment method.

To verify your role, select Access Management from the admin menu and then locate your credentials in the Team tab.
