Redis Resources

Redis is an open source, key-value database built with an in-memory design that emphasizes speed. It has support for rich data types, atomic operations, and Lua scripting.

Additional Tools for Redis Managed Databases

The DigitalOcean API

The DigitalOcean API lets you manage DigitalOcean resources programmatically using conventional HTTP requests. All the functionality available in the DigitalOcean Control Panel is also available through the API.

By sending requests to the API’s /v2/databases endpoint, you can list, create, or delete database clusters as well as scale the size of a cluster, add or remove read-only replicas, and manage other configuration details. See the API documentation on databases for more information.

The DigitalOcean Command Line Client, doctl

doctl is a command-line interface for the DigitalOcean API and supports many of the same actions.

doctl supports managing database clusters, database pools, replicas, and users, and more. Use doctl databases help for more information.

On DigitalOcean Redis Database Clusters

Redis database clusters reserve some memory for overhead to handle cluster operations, like backups and replication. Optimize Redis memory usage with cluster-level settings, like eviction policies, and application-level settings, like minimizing writes.
