Intro to Redis Cluster Sharding – Advantages, Limitations, Deploying & Client Connections

Intro to Redis Cluster Sharding – Advantages, Limitations, Deploying & Client Connections

Redis Cluster is the native sharding implementation available within Redis that allows you to automatically distribute your data across multiple nodes without having to rely on external tools and utilities. At ScaleGrid, we recently added support for Redis Clusters on our platform through our fully managed Redis hosting plans. In this post, we’re going to introduce you to the advanced Redis Cluster sharding opportunities, discuss its advantages and limitations, when you should deploy, and how to connect to your Redis Cluster.

RebornDB: the Next Generation Distributed Key-Value Store

There are many key-value stores in the world and they are widely used in many systems. E.g, we can use a Memcached to store a MySQL query result for later same query, use MongoDB to store documents for better searching, etc.

For different scenarios, we should choose different key-value store. There is no silver-bullet key-value store for all solutions. But if you just want a simple key-value store, easy to use, very fast, supporting many powerful data structures, redis may be a good choice for your start.  

Redis is advanced key-value cache and store, under BSD license. It is very fast, has many data types(String, Hash, List, Set, Sorted Set …), uses RDB or AOF persistence and replication to guarantee data security, and supplies many language client libraries.

Most of all, market chooses Redis. There are many companies using Redis and it has proved its worth.

Although redis is great, it still has some disadvantages, and the biggest one is memory limitation.  Redis keeps all data in memory, which limits the whole dataset size and lets us save more data impossibly.

The official redis cluster solves this by splitting data into many redis servers, but it has not been proven in many practical environments yet. At the same time, it need us to change our client libraries to support “MOVED” redirection and other special commands, this is unacceptable in running production too. So redis cluster is not a good solution now.

QDB

We like redis, and want to go beyond its limitation, so we building a service named QDB, which is compatible with redis, saves data in disk to exceed memory limitation and keeps hot data in memory for performance.

Introduction

QDB is a redis like, fast key-value store.It has below good features:
