Redis is a key-value store, which means that it stores data as key-value pairs. It is designed to be very fast and to handle large amounts of data. Redis supports a wide range of data structures, including strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, and geospatial indexes.
Here's an example of storing and retrieving data in Redis using the Python Redis client:
In this example, we are using the
redis.Redis class to connect to Redis on
localhost at the default port (
6379) and database (
0). We are then setting a key-value pair using the
set method and getting the value of the key using the
get method. The
b prefix indicates that the value is returned as bytes.
