Hi there,

There was a similar question asked here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/can-we-add-redis-modules-to-the-managed-redis-service

As the Redis Modules are licensed in a way that managed database services, like what DigitalOcean provides, cannot legally provide them to customers.

The only way to use Redis Modules on DO infrastructure is to setup a normal droplet and install everything by hand:
