Redis’s documentation states that to get the same kind of persistence you’d expect from a relational database like Postgres you should enable both AOF and RDB.

I’m looking for a Redis instance with this kind of persistence. Does Digital Ocean’s managed database enable AOF and RDB, or is it meant more for caching, where performance might be more important? Is this configurable? What eviction policy should I choose for this use case?

I looked into it, and it appears that DO Redis is more meant for caching, and doesn’t appear to have a way to save data to disk or take backups. That’s a shame, because that would have been pretty convenient.
