Deploy Redis on KubeSphere

Redis is an open-source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker.

This tutorial walks you through an example of deploying Redis from the App Store of KubeSphere.

Prerequisites

  • Please make sure you enable the OpenPitrix system.
  • You need to create a workspace, a project, and a user account (project-regular) for this tutorial. The account needs to be a platform regular user and to be invited as the project operator with the operator role. In this tutorial, you log in as project-regular and work in the project demo-project in the workspace demo-workspace. For more information, see Create Workspaces, Projects, Accounts and Roles.
