Reliable and powerful Redis as a service.
Managed redis plans for Akkeris provide reliable and fast redis caching.
Standard and hobby instances are great for sharing session information with small amounts of data among one to four applications. Only standard-2 and standard-3 instances can store permenant persisted data.
Premium instances are great for sessions with large amounts of data associated with each key and more than 4 apps that share the data. It's also great for key object storage for temporary data of large JSON objects. Only premium-2 and premium-3 instances can store permenant persisted data.
