Distributed Cache Service (DCS)

In-memory database and cache service for fast data access

Redis is a NoSQL database. It can handle various data structures, but should not be used for complex data structures; relational databases are better suited for these. While caching the storage in the RAM allows fast data access, Redis is ideal for all applications in which speed is the main focus. However, the storage cache not persistent, meaning that the stored data is deleted if the virtual machine is switched off.

The Distributed Cache Service is ideal for use as a cache server (e.g. in order to accelerate the loading times of websites), for real-time analyses, high-speed transactions, and message queuing. Clusters made up of individual DCS instances can be used for applications with extremely high performance requirements.

Distributed Cache Service in the Open Telekom Cloud

Redis is available in the Open Telekom Cloud as the Distributed Cache Service. Via the console, the database can be defined in three variants: as a single-node database for temporary data storage, as a master/standby database for higher availability, and as a cluster for high performance. The Distributed Cache Service is billed on an hourly basis in accordance with the chosen RAM size and type (master/standby or single-node database).
