What’s new with Redis 4.0
Key features added in Redis version 4.0 include:
We’ve also added a manual failover API to Cloud Memorystore so you can test its failover behavior. Before deploying applications in production using Cloud Memorystore, it’s important to test the behavior of the client and the application when a failover happens. With the new API, it’s easy to trigger a failover and observe the application behavior so you can plan accordingly for backup and restore purposes.
We exposed Redis metrics to Stackdriver in the previous release, so that you can easily debug Redis issues in your application. To make it easier to debug client-side issues, we’ve partnered with OpenCensus to automatically collect traces and metrics from your app. The traces and metrics are available in a variety of back-end monitoring tools, including Stackdriver, so you can get an even more detailed picture of Redis performance.
