IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL and Redis are now available as GA services in the IBM Cloud Frankfurt region

These database-as-a-service products are fully managed, highly available, and built from the ground up with enterprise security in mind. These services are scalable, cost-efficient, and readily usable for enterprise application development. All databases come with serverless scaling, backup orchestration, and bring-your-own-encryption-key integrations for data at rest.

To protect your application against single data center outages, we are deploying in a Multi-AZ architecture across three data centers in Frankfurt with a 99.95% Uptime SLA. All backups are sent to IBM Cloud Object Storage’s EU Cross-Regional Service to ensure business continuity while maintaining compliance and data residency requirements.

Redis is a powerful, open source, in-memory key value store that acts as a cache, queue, or transient store designed for the modern application stack. Applications typically use the Redis for database and web caching or counting and queuing.
