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.

Redis role in DevOps

DevOps embraces a vision of enterprise technology that is a combination of traditionally siloed departments or divisions made up of Software Development (Engineering), Technology Operations, and Quality Assurance, where these three important functions are merged into a single organizational unit. This new unit emphasizes communication and cooperation among the various components while focusing on ways to automate and integrate development, quality testing, and production of technology services and resources. By focusing on these interrelated aspects of information technology, DevOps means to reduce the time-to-market or time-to-release of a new IT service, lower failure rates and runtime bugs, and increase recovery time if a product or service fails catastrophically.

Redis fits very well into this model due to a number of features including Redis's ease-of-deployment, rigorous unit and functionality testing of core and supplementary Redis technology, and the ease...
