In Detail

The database is the backbone of any application and Redis is a next generation NoSQL database which can provide ultra-fast performance if tuned and calibrated correctly. Instant Redis Optimization How-to will show you how to leverage Redis in your application for greater performance and scalability.

Instant Redis Optimization How-to will show you how to make the most of Redis. Using real-world examples of Redis as a caching and queuing service, you will learn how to install and calibrate Redis to optimize memory usage, read and write speed, as well as bulk writes and transactions. If you want to use Redis for its blazing fast capabilities, then this book is for you.

Instant Redis Optimization How-to shows you how to optimize and scale Redis with practical recipes on installation and calibration for performance and memory optimization as well as advanced features like PUB/SUB.

This book starts by providing clear instructions on how to install and fine-tune Redis to work efficiently in your application stack. You will also learn how to maintain persistence, how to optimize Redis to handle different data types, as well as memory usage optimization. You will then learn how to use bulk writes and transactions, as well as publish/subscribe features to get the most out of Redis.

Offering best practices and troubleshooting tips, this book will also show you how to manage and maintain performance. This book finishes by recommending the best client libraries for all major programming languages. By the end of this book you will know how to create blazing fast applications using Redis.
