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.

Chapter 8. Docker Containers and Cloud Deployments

Are you puzzled by the exploding popularity of Docker and the growing interest in building and running applications with Linux containers in the past few years? Using Docker in your organization offers real efficiency improvements in how applications are developed but more importantly, how applications are deployed, secured, and restored in a production environment. Docker is based on the container, basically a Linux "operating-system virtualization" approach that allows multiple applications to run in isolated environments within a single Linux host instance. Running Redis within Docker allows for configuration and other setup options to be defined in a Linux environment that can be replicated and isolated from other processes and applications. While Docker offers much in the way of improving operational efficiencies, hosting your Redis databases on public or private clouds is another option and, in fact, most of the popular cloud providers...
