Unveiling cachegrand cloud

CAAS cloud platform

In a significant step forward for cloud services, cachegrand today unveiled cachegrand cloud. This new platform is a first in the industry: a Redis-compatible, cache-as-a-service solution that offers sub-millisecond latencies.

The initial offering from cachegrand cloud is a Starter Plan with limited seats. The plan is equipped with a range of features designed to meet various business needs:

  • 1GB of space
  • Up to 1000 concurrent connections
  • Data Encryption
  • Data Persistance
  • Hourly backups

These limits though are currently extended to allow more room for testing.

The plan's pricing structure is simplified, allowing businesses to clearly understand their costs:

  • Compute time, FREE
  • Read / Written data, FREE
  • Data storage FREE (Premium plan only, $0.00015/GB/hour with extended TTL)
  • Data transfer, FREE up to the first 5GB/Month, $0.05/GB/Month after.

cachegrand has also prioritized data protection in the Starter Plan. It includes hourly backups and a service level agreement (SLA) of 99.5%, providing customers with confidence in the security of their data.

One of the key attributes of cachegrand cloud is its ease of use. All operations are performed via a command-line utility. Takes less than a minute from installation to instance creation, streamlining the setup process. The command-line utility of cachegrand cloud is also designed with automation in mind, making it an excellent fit for integration into your existing pipelines.

cachegrand cloud is compatible with any Redis-compatible client or library, this means you can easily use popular tools like redis-cli, Predis, node-redis, and more with the platform. This compatibility opens up a wide range of possibilities for developers and teams already familiar with these tools, making the transition to using cachegrand cloud seamless and hassle-free.

At the heart of cachegrand cloud is the open-source platform, cachegrand. This foundational technology is what enables the platform's impressive performance.

cachegrand cloud is designed to help customers control their spending without having to sacrifice performance. This approach provides a new way for businesses to think about and use cloud services.

Regardless of your preferred platform - be it Amazon Web Services, Azure, Digital Ocean, or Google Cloud Platform - cachegrand cloud can seamlessly integrate into your workflow across multiple regions and providers. Below is our current coverage for the Tier 1:

Google Cloud Platform (gcp)us-east4<1ms< 5ms
us-west1<1ms< 5ms

We also provide coverage for a Tier 2 set of additional cloud regions where latencies are a bit higher.

ProviderRegionAverage LatencyMax Latency
Amazon Web Service (aws)us-east-214ms< 20ms
Azure (azure)West US9ms< 20ms
Google Cloud Platform (gcp)us-east113ms< 20ms

However, we're not stopping here, we are committed to further expanding its footprint to additional regions and providers, continuing to broaden our reach and enhance our service.

Many modern Key-Value store and caching solutions promise to help customers to keep their cloud costs under control but most rely on cloud-based platforms themselves; which is not sustainable in the long term. At cachegrand cloud, we're taking a different approach and investing in building our own cloud infrastructure, which we believe is the key to establishing a sustainable business model that will serve our customers and us well into the future.
