Redis - Connect with RedisInsight

Connect to your Public Cloud Databases for Redis using RedisInsight

Last updated 24th March 2022


Public Cloud Databases allow you to focus on building and deploying cloud applications while OVHcloud takes care of the database infrastructure and maintenance in operational conditions.

This guide explains how to connect to a Redis database instance with the free GUI: RedisInsight.



A Redis instance can be managed through multiple ways. One of the easiest, yet powerful, is to use a Command Line Interface (CLI), as shown in our guide: Redis - Connect with CLI or by using programming languages, such as PHP.

Another way is to interact directly using the GUI: RedisInsight.

In order to do so, we will need to install RedisInsight, then configure our Public Cloud Databases for Redis instances to accept incoming connections, and finally configure RedisInsight.



To interact with your Redis instance with RedisInsight you need to install it.

Please follow the official RedisInsight to get the latest information.

We are now ready to learn how to connect to our Redis instance.
