Peek at Backup for Redis™

ScaleGrid for Redis™* offers a unique feature called Peek at Backup, or Selective Restores, which allow you to take a look at the content of the backups without impacting your deployment. You can use Peek at Backup for both On-Demand Backup or Scheduled Backup for Redis™.


Peek at Backup creates a new standalone (or sharded) server with backup contents that you can connect to and data that can be examined. Standard pricing rules apply for this newly created cluster.
