Depending on how it is configured, Redis can act like a database, a cache or a message broker. It’s important to note that Redis is a NoSQL database system. This implies that unlike SQL (Structured Query Language) driven database systems like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle, Redis does not store data in well-defined database schemas which constitute tables, rows, and columns. 8 ranked database on DB-Engines with a score of 144.08.

It’s also a good way to determine which components of the database can be enhanced or optimized to increase your efficiency and performance. This is usually done through monitoring software and tools either built-in to the database management software or installed from third-party providers.

MySQL High Availability Framework Explained – Part II: Semisynchronous Replication

Scalegrid

Since we are operating with 2 slaves and the rpl_semi_sync_master_wait_for_slave_count is set to 1, we’ve noticed that at least one of the slaves does acknowledge within a reasonable amount of time and the master does not switch over to asynchronous mode during temporary network disruptions. The theorem states that, in the presence of a network partition, we will have to choose either availability or consistency, but not both.

A one size fits all database doesn't fit anyone

This is a classical problem in any distributed system where each node thinks the other nodes are down, while in reality, only the network communication between the nodes is broken. We assume that due to network issues, the cluster has partitioned into two groups – master in one group and 2 slaves in the other group, and we will denote this as [(M), (S1,S2)].
