What is Redis?
Redis is an open-source, networked, in-memory, key-value data store with optional durability. It is written in ANSI C. The development of Redis has been sponsored by Pivotal since May 2013; before that, it was sponsored by VMware. According to the monthly ranking by DB-Engines.com, Redis is the most popular key-value store. The name Redis means REmote DIctionary Server.
How to use this image
start a redis instance
docker run --name some-redis -d redis
This image includes
EXPOSE 6379 (the redis port), so standard container linking will make it automatically available to the linked containers (as the following examples illustrate).
start with persistent storage
docker run --name some-redis -d redis redis-server --appendonly yes
If persistence is enabled, data is stored in the
VOLUME /data, which can be used with
--volumes-from some-volume-container or
-v /docker/host/dir:/data (see docs.docker volumes).
For more about Redis Persistence, see http://redis.io/topics/persistence.
connect to it from an application
docker run --name some-app --link some-redis:redis -d application-that-uses-redis
... or via
docker run -it --link some-redis:redis --rm redis sh -c 'exec redis-cli -h "$REDIS_PORT_6379_TCP_ADDR" -p "$REDIS_PORT_6379_TCP_PORT"'
Additionally, If you want to use your own redis.conf ...
You can create your own Dockerfile that adds a redis.conf from the context into /data/, like so.
FROM redis COPY redis.conf /usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf CMD [ "redis-server", "/usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf" ]
Alternatively, you can specify something along the same lines with
docker run options.
docker run -v /myredis/conf/redis.conf:/usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf --name myredis redis /usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf
/myredis/conf/ is a local directory containing your
redis.conf file. Using this method means that there is no need for you to have a Dockerfile for your redis container.
