We can run Redis on OpenShift using downloadable cartridge and also we can work with Redis CLI on OpenShift, which is the standard for Redis.

The first one is less complicated while the second one is scalable and can offer more redundancy. Second one can not be used in free accounts with WordPress because simply if we use two gears for Redis only, we have to use one gear for WordPress, which is not desired – MySQL should be at different gear. Technically, the first one solves the basic need. We are providing a basic example for adding Redis to WordPress – it is probable to get problem with both of them in long run.
