Is it possible to run discourse without redis cache on aws elasticache?


(Aedensixty) #1

Currently we are discourse on an ec2 instance and elasticache redis instance deploying with docker. Is there anyway of running discourse without redis? We are getting charged quite highly for it especially because we need a staging and live instance running most of the time.

Thanks,
Aedan.

You can use Redis Elasticache, or the redis server that’s built into the standard docker image, or a standalone redis instance you setup and maintain yourself, but there has to be a redis somewhere. The cheapest way is almost certainly going to be running redis in the standalone container image; whether that suits your architecture requirements is a different story, but it’s a decision only you can make.
