How to install multiple Redis on single server

Redis is an advanced key-value store that is open source. Because keys may contain strings, hashes, lists, sets, and sorted sets, it is sometimes referred to as a data structure server.This artical is about how to install multiple redis on a single server

Redis is a single-threaded event loop that is highly efficient. It’s really fast up to a point, but it can’t scale beyond two CPU cores (one for main requests, one for file compaction).It works pretty well and is quite simple to use if you need something light-weight with that profile. It also includes a lot of functionality, like as excellent circle distance searches, and you can develop Lua scripts that execute on Redis (in separate processes, communicating with the main request loop for data though).

Create the directory for the new instance

$ sudo install -o redis -g redis -d /var/lib/redis2

Create a new configuration file

$ sudo cp -p /etc/redis/redis.conf /etc/redis/redis2.conf

Edit the new configuration file

$ sudo nano /etc/redis/redis2.conf
pidfile /var/run/redis/
logfile /var/log/redis/redis-server2.log
dir /var/lib/redis2
port 6380

Create new service file

$ sudo cp /lib/systemd/system/redis-server.service /lib/systemd/system/redis-server2.service

Edit the new service file

$ sudo vim /lib/systemd/system/redis-server2.service
ExecStart=/usr/bin/redis-server /etc/redis/redis2.conf

Enable and start the service

$ sudo systemctl enable redis-server2.service
$ sudo systemctl start redis-server2.service

Check status

$ ps aux |grep redis
