What the anynines Redis for Pivotal Cloud Foundry tile can do for you

The anynines Redis for Pivotal Cloud Foundry tile allows Pivotal Cloud Foundry users to provision fully configured Redis instances on demand. BOSH is used to provision Redis server instances in a reliable, repeatable way on every infrastructure Cloud Foundry can be deployed to. Each instance runs on a dedicated VM, which has the advantage of clearly defined networking, disk, CPU and I/O resources. Choosing different service plans results in different Redis instances, that vary in performance.

Upcoming Features

For the next Redis tile for PCF release we have planned the following features:

  • High Availability: Using Redis Sentinel we can provide high availability for Redis.
  • Persistence: We want to support Redis’ durability. Current a9s Redis tile plans are non-persistent only.
  • Automatic Cloud Foundry security groups update: While the a9s service guard is already available for Open Source Cloud Foundry setups, this component is not part of the a9s Redis tile for PCF yet.
  • Automatic backup of all service instances: This feature is also available for Open Source Cloud Foundry setups. In the next major release it will also be included in the a9s Redis tile.
