hey all 👋 i’m running fleet on k8s, with a managed GCP mysql server. does anyone have recommendations on whether it’s better to run a managed redis service (on GCP), or as a sidecar container within the k8s deployment? also, what are the typical redis requirements, like 5, 10, 25GB?

I’d say managed redis is definitely the easiest way to go. How many hosts do you plan on enrolling?

hard to say, but let’s say ~30,000

i’m considering cost a slight factor, but not mandatory if a managed redis is much more performant or otherwise more effective. i bring that up because i saw how a 25GB high availability managed redis service is ~$1k a month for just one instance! didn’t expect it to be that high

Woah. Yeah I don’t think you’d need that beefy of a redis instance.

this is great, thanks, i think i’ll stick with managed redis, which i’ve already setup anyway, and reduce down heavily and watch the load
