Deploy Redis with Docker

This is an example for running Redis as a private service on Render.

Render private services are only visible to other Render services in your account. They have internal URLs like redis:6379, can speak any protocol (like RESP), and can listen on any port.


  1. Fork render-examples/redis on GitHub.
  2. Create a new Private Service on Render, and give Render permission to access your new repo.
  3. Enter a name for the service (this will be used to generate the private URL). Make sure the environment is set to Docker and save.

That’s it! Your private service will be available on a URL similar to redis:10000 once the build finishes. You can start using your Redis URL from other services in your Render account.
