Create and Edit a Cloud Account for Redis Cloud Ultimate

    In Redis Cloud Ultimate subscriptions, most customers build their subscriptions in our AWS accounts so that we can take responsibility to make sure that the infrastructure is in optimal condition. If you need to build your subscriptions in your own AWS accounts, we need to have access to your AWS account to help with monitoring, maintenance and technical support. To provide us with secure authorization to access your AWS accounts, you need to:

    Creating IAM Entities for AWS Cloud Accounts

    In most Redis Cloud deployments, the infrastructure of your Redis Cloud subscriptions on AWS is created in dedicated AWS accounts that we manage for you. In Redis Cloud Ultimate, you can choose to have this infrastructure on your own AWS accounts. You’ll want these accounts to be separate from any AWS application accounts, and you’ll need to create some dedicated IAM entities to let us manage the infrastructure for you.

    AWS Zone Mapping for Redis Cloud Essentials

    To get top performance from your Redis Cloud Essentials database, you want to match the AWS availability zones of your application to your Redis Cloud Essentials database. Note - If you have a Multi-AZ subscription, you do not need to map AWS zones. AWS zone mapping is not yet supported for Redis Cloud Pro and Ultimate. Why do zone mapping? As you probably know, the Amazon AWS cloud infrastructure is divided into regions across the world and Availability Zones (AZ) inside each region.

    Flushing Databases

    There are times where you want to delete all database data. Warning - The flush command deletes ALL of the data in the database. This includes all data in memory and persisted to disk. We recommend that you backup your database before you flush the data. flushall for Redis Cloud databases You can flush a database from the command line with the redis-cli command or with your Redis client.

    Importing Data Into Your Database

    You can import an existing dataset into your Redis Cloud instance from an existing Redis server or an RDB file. In order to import a sharded database that has multiple RDB files you must first merge the files into a single RDB. For assistance, contact Support. Note - Expired keys are not imported. As a result, the number of keys in the source and destination databases can be different after the import is complete.

    Member of Multiple Accounts

    You can be a member of multiple accounts in Redis Cloud. For example, if you created your own account and your company has arranged its subscriptions into multiple accounts (Dev, Test, and Prod) that you are a member of. When you open the Redis Cloud menu, you see a menu like the screenshot below. When you click on the arrow, you see all of the accounts you are a member of and you can switch between the accounts.
