Mastering Redis

By: Jeremy Nelson

Overview of this book

Redis is the most popular, open-source, key value data structure server that provides a wide range of capabilities on which multiple platforms can be be built. Its fast and flexible data structures give your existing applications an edge in the development environment. This book is a practical guide which aims to help you deep dive into the world of Redis data structure to exploit its excellent features. We start our journey by understanding the need of Redis in brief, followed by an explanation of Advanced key management. Next, you will learn about design patterns, best practices for using Redis in DevOps environment and Docker containerization paradigm in detail. After this, you will understand the concept of scaling with Redis cluster and Redis Sentinel , followed by a through explanation of incorporating Redis with NoSQL technologies such as Elasticsearch and MongoDB. At the end of this section, you will be able to develop competent applications using these technologies. You will then explore the message queuing and task management features of Redis and will be able to implement them in your applications. Finally, you will learn how Redis can be used to build real-time data analytic dashboards, for different disparate data streams.

Programming Redis administration topics

Man Redis features and operational modes provide additional capabilities and restrictions when you are programming applications for your customers and stakeholders. As we have seen, adding Lua scripts to our application transfers even more business logic and data manipulation to the Redis instance, but with important restrictions and trade-offs. In the next sections, we'll do a tour of the administrative features of Redis that are pertinent to programming applications. First, we'll look at Redis's replication solution with Master-Slave instances, and then Redis transaction support and see how each of these features offer opportunities and trade-offs in our applications that have operational implications.

Master-Slave replication

A fundamental administrative topic to consider when programming with Redis is the decision about when to use Master/Slave replication for added stability, scaling, and performance, Redis data for application use. In replication...
