How To Manage a Redis Database: A Free eBook

We at DigitalOcean are excited to share with you a free eBook to support you as you explore Redis. How To Manage a Redis Database is available for download in PDF or EPUB format.

About this Book

Redis is an open-source, in-memory key-value data store known for its flexibility, performance, and broad language support. A NoSQL database, Redis doesn't use structured query language (otherwise known as SQL) to store, manipulate, and retrieve data. Redis instead comes with its own set of commands for managing and accessing data.

The chapters in this book cover a broad range of Redis commands, but they generally focus on connecting to a Redis database, managing a variety of data types, and troubleshooting and debugging problems, along with a few other more specific functions. You're encouraged to jump to whichever chapter is relevant to the task you're trying to complete.

Motivation for this Book

Every available Redis command is covered and thoroughly explained in the official Redis command documentation, as well as in numerous other resources in print and online. However, many resources tend to silo each command off from one another with little tying them together.

This book aims to provide an approachable introduction to Redis concepts by outlining many of the key-value store's commands so readers can learn their patterns and syntax, thus building up readers' understanding gradually. This book covers topics ranging from connecting to a Redis data store, to managing a variety of Redis data types, troubleshooting errors, and more.

Learning Goals and Outcomes

The goal for this book is to serve as an introduction to Redis for those interested in getting started with it, or key-value stores in general. For more experienced users, this book can function as a collection of helpful cheat sheets and in-depth reference. Each chapter is self-contained and can be followed independently of the others. By reading through and following along with each chapter, you'll become acquainted with many of Redis's most widely used commands, which will help you as you begin to build applications that take advantage of its power and speed.
