Garantia Data Brings its Infinitely Scalable, Highly-Available Redis Cloud Solution to Heroku, AppFog and AppHarbor

Garantia Data, a provider of innovative in-memory NoSQL cloud services, today announced the availability of its Redis Cloud database hosting service on Heroku, AppFog and AppHarbor platforms over AWS. Garantia Data’s new Redis Cloud add-ons will provide the hundreds of thousands of developers who run their applications on these platforms with an infinitely scalable, highly available, high-performance and zero-management Redis solution in just one click.

Used by both enterprise developers and cutting-edge start-ups, Redis is an open source, RAM-based, key-value memory store that provides significant value in a wide range of important use cases. Garantia Data’s Redis Cloud is a fully-automated service for running Redis on the cloud – completely freeing developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, scaling, data-persistence configuration and failure recovery.

“Redis Cloud has been running in a private beta on Amazon EC2 since January and in a free, public beta since June, and we survived several node failures and three AWS outages without losing any customer data,” said Ofer Bengal, CEO of Garantia Data. “After successfully navigating these events, we are now 100 percent confident that our service is fully reliable and ready for PaaS environments. Heroku, AppFog and AppHarbor developers will now be able to enjoy the powerful benefits that our solution can bring to their critical databases, while gaining more time to focus on building the best possible applications.”

Redis Cloud is the only solution that scales seamlessly and infinitely, so a Redis dataset can grow to any size while supporting all Redis commands. It provides true high-availability, including instant failover with no human intervention. In addition, it runs a dataset on multiple CPUs and uses advanced techniques to maximize performance for any dataset size. Redis Cloud add-ons let developers create multiple databases in a single plan, each running in a dedicated process and in a non-blocking manner.

"We're very excited to welcome Garantia Data to the AppFog ecosystem," said Lucas Carlson, CEO and founder of AppFog. "Redis Cloud is exactly the sort of production, workload-ready service that our customers have been demanding. As huge fans of Redis, we feel that Redis Cloud's robust performance and complete feature set makes it one of the best NoSQL DB-as-a-Service options out there. We can't wait to see what developers create with Redis Cloud and AppFog!"

"We're excited to welcome Garantia Data’s Redis Cloud into the AppHarbor add-on catalog,” said Michael Friis, co-founder of AppHarbor. “Redis is becoming a critical component for many .NET developers and is used by prominent .NET-powered web-properties like StackOverflow."

"We've seen Redis become an integral part of modern web applications, in part because of its amazing performance and flexibility,” said Glenn Gillen, Engineering Manager for Heroku Add-ons. “We're excited to include Redis Cloud in the Heroku Add-ons marketplace so our customers can take advantage of its highly available and scalable solution in the quickest and simplest way possible."

Garantia Data is currently offering the Redis Cloud free of charge to early adopters of its Heroku, AppFog and AppHarbor add-ons. The company will demonstrate the Redis Cloud and its new PaaS add-ons at Booth #332 during AWS re: Invent, November 27-29 in Las Vegas.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...
Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014.
