Redis Cluster

Redis Cluster was designed to automatically shard data across different Redis instances, providing some degree of availability during network partitions. It is not strongly consistent under chaotic scenarios.

Unlike Sentinel, Redis Cluster only requires a single process to run. However, there are two ports that Redis uses. The first is used to serve clients (low port), and the second serves as a bus for node-to-node communication (high port). The high port is used to exchange messages such as failure detection, failover, resharding, and so on.

The Redis Cluster bus uses a binary protocol to exchange messages between nodes. The low port is specified in the configuration, and Redis assigns the high port by adding 10,000 to the low port. ...
