Question: How do I delete my Redis Cloud account?

Answer

Deleting a Redis Cloud account involves a few steps, primarily because you might have resources or data that need to be handled carefully before closing the account. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to proceed:

  1. Backup Your Data: Before deleting your account, ensure you've backed up any important data from your Redis databases. This can't be emphasized enough, as once the account is deleted, all data will be irreversibly lost.
redis-cli save

This command saves the current database in a dump.rdb file inside the Redis installation folder. However, consider using BGSAVE for larger databases to avoid blocking the server.

  1. Delete All Databases: To avoid incurring any additional charges and clean up your resources, manually delete all your Redis databases within the Redis Cloud dashboard.

  1. Cancel Any Subscriptions: If you have a paid subscription, navigate to the billing or subscription section of your Redis Cloud account and follow the process to cancel your subscription. Ensure there are no outstanding balances.

  2. Contact Support: Currently, Redis Cloud doesn't allow you to delete your account directly from the dashboard due to security and data integrity reasons. You need to reach out to the Redis support team to request account deletion. Make sure to provide them with your account details and any relevant information to facilitate the process.

  3. Confirmation: Wait for a confirmation email from Redis Cloud confirming that your account has been successfully deleted. Keep this email for your records.

Important Considerations:

  • Deleting your Redis Cloud account is irreversible. Once the account is deleted, you will not be able to recover any data or information associated with it.
  • Make sure to remove any API keys or integrations tied to your Redis Cloud account from your applications to avoid errors.

By following these steps, you can securely and effectively delete your Redis Cloud account, ensuring that all your data and subscriptions are properly managed and terminated.
