Once a week, I am googling for new articles or projects which use Redis Plugins for Grafana and constantly see links to Aiven — “Scale-up and get the latest open-source features without in-house upgrade hassles”. Interesting? Redis database can be deployed in Redis Cloud and Grafana in Grafana Cloud. Can both of them be deployed in Aiven and seamlessly work with other services?

Browsing the Aiven website, I learned that I could deploy a modern open-source Redis database in 10 minutes, get 99.99% uptime in 90+ Regions. Aiven supports out-of-the-box Grafana, InfluxDB, Kafka, and many other open-source projects.

Let’s create our Redis and Grafana services

When you log in to the Aiven console, you can choose one of the supported services: Kafka, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Elasticsearch, Cassandra, Redis, InfluxDB, Grafana, M3DB, etc. I will create the Redis database for my new project on AWS in the us-east-1 region with minimum configuration and upgrade to the bigger instance when the project goes live.


Every month Redis Labs hosts speakers from around the world and talks about everything Redis.

On Monday, July 19, 2021, two speakers - Davies Liu, talked about JuiceFS and used Redis as its metastore. And Mikhail Volkov explores some really cool RedisAI use cases with Redis plugins for Grafana.

Mikhail Volkov started his session with “Redis is one of the simplest and powerful tools ever created” and can be deployed Anywhere — IoT, Cloud, and On-premises. Redis is a Multi-model database supporting Time-series data structures, JSON data type, Full-Text search, graphs, and can serve tensors, execute deep learning graphs, and provide a dynamic execution framework.


Herminas Reea showcased her new Haute Couture collection at Miami Fashion Week on May 31, 2019. Born in Romania in a Greek-Armenian family where art, design, and exact digits prevail, the designer has learned from a young age a little bit about everything, combining later the art, the fashion creation with the accuracy of the curved lines of the modern woman full of seduction and sensuality.
