Polyaxon ships with a default redis based on the stable Helm chart.

You can check the chart values to extend it's configuration.

External Redis

If you prefer to have Redis managed by you or hosted outside of Kubernetes, you need to disable the in-cluster redis, and provide the information needed to establish a connection to the external one, e.g.:

redis:
  enabled: false

externalServices:
  redis:
    password: polyaxon
    host: 35.262.163.88

External Redis with password

If your redis instance requires a password, you need to provide it as well:

redis:
  enabled: false

externalServices:
  redis:
    usePassword: true
    password: polyaxon
    host: 35.262.163.88
    port: 1234

Memorystore for Redis

You can use Cloud MemoryStore for Redis if you are running Polyaxon on GKE, please follow this integration guide.

Using Redis as broker

You can also use Redis for as async worker broker, please check this section on how to alter the default broker behaviour.

Scheduling

If you decided to deploy Redis in-cluster make sure to set proper node scheduling to avoid running high load runs on the same node hosting the Redis.
