This section contains pages to help you get started quickly with a minimum setup and use the various features, environments, and systems offered with Redis Enterprise Software.

    Quick Setup of Redis Enterprise Software (RS)

    The steps to set up a Redis Enterprise Software (RS) cluster with a single node are super simple and go as follows: Step 1: Install Redis Enterprise Software Step 2: Setup a Redis Enterprise Software cluster Step 3: Create a new Redis database Step 4: Connect to your Redis database "Quick Setup" steps on this page apply to a Linux based system install. For instructions for running Docker on Linux, Windows, or MacOS, go to the Docker Quick Start Guide.

    Creating a Database

    Getting Started with Redis Enterprise CRDBs (conflict-free replicated databases) In this guide, we'll set up a scale-minimized CRDB (conflict-free replicated database) spanning across two Redis Enterprise Software clusters for test and development environments. Here are the steps: Step 1: Run four Docker containers Step 2: Setup two clusters Step 3: Create a new Redis Enterprise CRDB Step 4: Connect to your member Redis Enterprise CRDBs The steps do the installation through Docker containers.

    Working with Redis Enterprise Software (RS) with Docker Containers

    You can run Redis Enterprise Software on Docker containers on Linux, Windows, or MacOS. The Redis Enterprise Software container represents a node in an RS Cluster. When deploying RS using Docker, there are a couple of common topologies: Topology #1: The simplest topology is to run a single-node RS Cluster with a single container in a single host machine. This is best for local development or functional testing. Obviously, single-node clusters come with limited functionality in a few ways.

    Redis Enterprise Software for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF)

    Redis Enterprise for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) exposes its service plans on the Marketplace. Developers can provision highly available and scalable Redis databases by creating instances of the service plans using Apps Manager or the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI). Installation and Configuration Step 1: Import the Redis Enterprise Software Tile You will need to import the Redis Enterprise Software .pivotal file into your Pivotal Cloud Foundry environment to get started.

    Benchmarking Redis Enterprise

    If you need to do a quick performance benchmark of Redis Enterprise, we have a tool just for this; memtier_benchmark. Prerequisites: Redis Enterprise Software installed A cluster configured A database created If you need a quick setup for the prerequisites, please go here. It is recommended to run memtier_benchmark on a separate node that is not part of the cluster being tested. If you run it on a node of the cluster, be mindful that it will affect the performance of both the cluster and memtier_benchmark.

    Getting Started with Kubernetes and OpenShift

    These are the steps required to set up a Redis Enterprise Software Cluster with OpenShift. Prerequisites: An OpenShift cluster installed with at least three nodes (each meeting the minimum requirements for a development installation The kubectl package installed at version 1.8 or higher The OpenShift cli installed Step 1: Login Log in to your OpenShift account as a super admin (so you have access to all the default projects).

    Getting Started with Redis Enterprise Software using Kubernetes

    Kubernetes provides simpler orchestration with containers and has been widely adapted. It is simple to get a Redis Enterprise cluster on Kubernetes with the new Redis Enterprise Docker container. What is Redis Enterprise? Redis is the most popular database used with Docker containers. Redis Enterprise (Redise) extends open source Redis and delivers stable high performance, linear scaling and high availability with significant operational savings. We will use the Docker container for 4.
