Anyone has ideas for that?

Have you tried it yourself? Your guess is as good as ours really :slight_smile:

People will eventually try it if they have a legitimate use case for it. I know @joffreyjaffeux is a fan of Heroku so he might give it a shot at some point in the indeterminate future.

Hello, currently to use Redis addon, you need account validation using credit card, which I haven’t done already. So @joffreyjaffeux may check into that.

Never checked this (and probably won’t in the near future) but afaik the biggest issue is not redis or db but filesystem.
