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 on a Linux host to test its capabilities. 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: Set up a Redis Enterprise Software cluster Step 3: Create a new Redis database Step 4: Connect to your Redis database This quick start is designed for local testing.

    Quick Start Tutorials

    Redis on Flash Quick Start Tutorial The steps to set up a Redis Enterprise Software cluster using Redis on Flash with a single node are simple and are as follows: Step 1: Install Redis Enterprise Software or launch with Docker container Step 2: Set up a Redis Enterprise Software cluster with Redis on Flash Step 3: Create a new Redis on Flash database Step 4: Connect to your new database If you are looking for more detailed installation instructions you can visit the installing and upgrading section of the technical documentation.

    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 affects 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: Set up 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, set up two RS installations and continue from Step 2.
