Scaling Redis™

ScaleGrid for Redis™* allows you to easily scale up your deployment in a few simple clicks. This is performed as a dynamic, in-place scale, so as long as you're leveraging a master/slave or Redis™ Cluster-mode deployment, you can scale with little to no downtime.

How to Scale Up Your Redis™ Deployment

Follow these steps to scale up your Redis™ deployment to a larger instance size:

  1. Login to the ScaleGrid console.
  2. Go to the Overview tab of your cluster detail page for Redis™.
  3. Click on the Scale button, and select "Scale up":
  4. Select the new size you'd like to use from the dropdown menu:
  1. Review the new size configuration, and click Scale!


Your Redis™ deployment at ScaleGrid will now scale!

Once you click to scale, we take over to provide a dynamic, in-place scale. This is implemented as a rolling operation where we perform the following tasks to scale your Redis™ deployment:

  • Take down one node at a time
  • Update the instance type
  • Update the disk size
  • Update the disk IOPS (if necessary)
  • Bring the node back up
  • Wait for it to sync up
  • Repeat to dynamically scale all nodes

As a rolling operation, you can dynamically scale your Redis™ deployment online. The only impact on your application is that you will see a failover of the master from one node to another.
