Question: What are the system requirements for running Redis Enterprise?


Redis Enterprise is a robust in-memory database platform built by Redis Labs that supports various data structures and modules, offering high performance, scalability, and enhanced security.

Before you install Redis Enterprise, it's essential to ensure that your system meets the following requirements:

Hardware Requirements

  • Minimum of 2 CPU cores
  • At least 4GB RAM
  • Minimum storage of 10GB

You may need more resources based on your usage patterns and the amount of data you plan to store in Redis.

Software Requirements

  • Supported operating systems: RHEL/CentOS 7 or higher, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or higher, Debian 9 or higher, Oracle Linux 7.
  • Docker version 17 or higher (if deploying Redis Enterprise using Docker).
  • Kubernetes version 1.14 or higher (if deploying Redis Enterprise on Kubernetes).

Here's a basic guide on how to install Redis Enterprise on Ubuntu:

# Update system packages sudo apt-get update # Install supporting software sudo apt-get install curl jq numactl # Download the Redis Enterprise Software setup package curl -O # Install the package sudo dpkg -i redislabs-6.0.20-50_amd64.deb # Run the setup with the install command sudo rladmin cluster create name my_cluster username password 'YourPassword' persistent_path /var/opt/redislabs license_file /path/to/your/license

Remember to replace 'YourPassword' and /path/to/your/license with your actual password and the path to your license file respectively.
