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)

    In this quick setup guide, we take you through the steps to install RS in a Linux environment to test its capabilities. To run RS in a Docker container for development or testing purposes, go to the Docker Quick Start Guide. 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 Step 1: Install Redis Enterprise Software You can download the binaries from the Redis Enterprise Software download site and copy the download package to machine with a Linux-based OS.

    Quick Start Tutorials

    RediSearch Quick Start Tutorial For this quick start, you will need the following: A Redis Enterprise Software cluster with set up already complete redis-cli Create a new database that uses the Module In the Redis Modules field, click . Select the RediSearch module. If you want the module to use a custom configuration, click Add configuration and enter the optional custom configuration. Click . For example: Click the Activate button

    Working with Redis Enterprise Software (RS) with Docker Containers

    For testing purposes, 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.

    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 Redis Enterprise CRDBs (conflict-free replicated databases)

    In this guide, we'll set up a CRDB (conflict-free replicated database) spanning across two Redis Enterprise Software clusters for test and development environments. Here are the steps: Step 1: Run two RS Docker containers Step 2: Setup each container as a cluster Step 3: Create a new Redis Enterprise CRDB Step 4: Test connectivity to the CRDB To run a CRDB on installations from the RS download package, setup two RS installations and continue from Step 2.
