Getting started with Managed Service for Redis

    To use the service, create a cluster and virtual machine to access the server from:

    1. All you need to create a database cluster is a folder in Yandex.Cloud that you are allowed to access. If you already have a folder in Yandex.Cloud, open the page of that folder in the management console. If there is no folder yet, create one:

      1. Click Create folder in the Home page of the management console.

      2. Enter the folder name.

        The name must be unique within the folder. The name may contain lowercase Latin letters, numbers, and hyphens. The first character must be a letter. The last character can't be a hyphen. The maximum length of the name is 63 characters.

      3. Select Create a default network. A network is created with subnets in each availability zone.

      4. Click Create folder.

    2. Create a VM (based on Linux or Windows) that you will use for accessing the DB cluster.

    Quickly create a cluster and test your connection to it:

    1. In the management console, select the folder where you want to create a DB cluster.

    2. Select Yandex Managed Service for Redis.

    3. Click Create cluster.

    4. Set the cluster parameters and click Create cluster.

    5. When the cluster is ready, its status on the Managed Service for Redis dashboard will change to RUNNING.

    6. You can connect to the database using the redis-cli program:

      $ redis-cli -h <FQDN of any host> \
                  -p 26379
      $ <host FQDN>:26379> sentinel get-master-addr-by-name <cluster name>
      1) "<master name>"
      2) "6379"
      
      $ redis-cli -h <master FQDN> \
                  -p 6379
      $ <master FQDN>:6379> auth <cluster password>
      OK
      $ <master FQDN>:6379> set foo bar
      OK
