Backups & Restores for Redis™

ScaleGrid for Redis™* allows you to automate your backups in the cloud. Since ScaleGrid uses full backups, all databases are restored on the instance.

We currently support two backup strategies, and two restore strategies:

We implement backups on various clouds in the following manner:

  • AWS - Backups for Redis™ on AWS are implemented using EBS snapshots.
  • DigitalOcean - Backups for Redis™ on DigitalOcean are implemented using disk snapshots
  • Azure - Backups for Redis™ on Azure are implemented using blob snapshots
  • GCP - Backups for Redis™ on GCP are implemented using disk snapshots
  • OCI - Backups for Redis™ on OCI are implemented using disk snapshots

ScaleGrid offers up to five backups per deployment on ScaleGrid’s dedicated hosting plans. Please contact ScaleGrid if you wish to generate additional rolling and ad hoc backups. Additional backups are available for an additional fee.


If you wish to look at the contents of backup (selected restore) without impacting your main cluster you can use the Selective Restore / Peek at Backup functionality.
