Redis

by v3.2.6 | Debian 9

Fastest in-memory database.

Redis is the go-to database for web applications and other projects that require data processing speed over anything else. Redis stands out from relational databases by using key-values to store data, resulting in faster response times when calling data. Redis is ideal for projects with a clearly-defined data structure and when speed is more important than scalability. But that doesn’t mean that Redis is limited in its read and write operations. 

Redis is the Swiss Army knife of databases by combining high performance, high-level data structures, and ease of use. Simplify Redis database management with Linode’s One-Click App.

Getting Started After Deployment

There are several types of Redis deployments you can use, for example, a standalone Redis installation or a Redis cluster with a master and two replicas. As a next step, you should determine which type of deployment you will need for your use case by reviewing the resources provided below.

  • Learn about Redis Clusters by going through their related tutorial.
  • Redis Sentinel is another deployment configuration focused on high availability. See the Redis Sentinel documentation for more details.
  • Read the Redis Quickstart to learn about securing Redis and installing client libraries to use Redis with your applications.
  • Refer to the Redis configuration documentation to learn about the Redis configuration file.

Once you have determined how you would like to configure your Redis deployment, connect to your Linode via SSH to complete your configuration.
