While there is very little configuration of Redis Cloud required, there are some things that you can and may want to do to tailor your database to your use case.

    Monitoring Performance

    Redis Cloud provides a straightforward dashboard that gives you good visibility into each database. Metrics can be viewed on the Metrics tab of a selected database. Use the scroll bar at the top to change between time intervals: last minute, five minutes, hour, day, week, month, and year. If you hover your cursor over the mini-graph for a metric, you should see two boxes with arrows, one arrow pointing to the left and one to the right (depending on which side of the mini-graph you hover on).

    Database Backups

    You can run scheduled and on-demand backups of your Redis Cloud databases to a remote storage location. In Redis Cloud Essentials, a scheduled backups run every 24 hours; in Redis Cloud Pro, you can choose the backup interval and time. Note - Backups are only available for paid subscriptions. Customers with free subscriptions must upgrade to a paid subscriptions to use backups. Subscription upgrade does not cause downtime. Can I export my Redis data from Redis Cloud?
