Supported connection clients
You can connect to Redis Enterprise Software databases programmatically using client libraries.
Redis client libraries
To connect an application to a Redis database hosted by Redis Enterprise Software, use a client library appropriate for your programming language.
You can also use the
redis-cli utility to connect to a database from the command-line.
For examples of each approach, see Get started using Redis Enterprise Software
Note: You cannot use client libraries to configure Redis Enterprise Software. Instead, use:
We recommend the following clients when using a discovery service based on the Redis Sentinel API:
- Redis-py (Python redis client)
- HiRedis (C redis client)
- Jedis (Java redis client)
- Ioredis (NodeJS redis client)
If you need to use another client, consider using Sentinel Tunnel to discover the current Redis master with Sentinel and create a TCP tunnel between a local port on the client and the master.
