Install Redis With Helm

March 09, 2019

Ensure that you have configured Helm first and applied the appropriate RBAC (see Helm Intro for more).


helm install --name redisha stable/redis-ha

What you should get back should be similar to the following:

NAME:   redisha

NAMESPACE: default

==> v1/Pod(related)
NAME                       READY  STATUS   RESTARTS  AGE
redisha-redis-ha-server-0  0/2    Pending  0         0s

==> v1/ConfigMap

redisha-redis-ha             ClusterIP  None            <none>       6379/TCP,26379/TCP  0s

==> v1/StatefulSet
NAME                     DESIRED  CURRENT  AGE

Redis can be accessed via port 6379 and Sentinel can be accessed via port 26379 on the following DNS name from within your cluster:

To connect to your Redis server:
1. Run a Redis pod that you can use as a client:

   kubectl exec -it redisha-redis-ha-server-0 sh -n default

2. Connect using the Redis CLI:

  redis-cli -h redisha-redis-ha.default.svc.cluster.local

Ensure to delete by using helm delete <NAME>.
