Full Description

DEPRECATED

The armel organization is deprecated in favor of the more-specific arm32v5 organization, as per https://github.com/docker-library/official-images#architectures-other-than-amd64. Please adjust your usages accordingly.

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

THESE IMAGES ARE VERY EXPERIMENTAL; THEY ARE PROVIDED ON A BEST-EFFORT BASIS WHILE docker-library/official-images#2289 IS STILL IN-PROGRESS (which is the first step towards proper multiarch images)

PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM FOR IMPORTANT THINGS

This image is built from the source of the official image of the same name (redis). Please see that image's description for links to the relevant Dockerfiles.

If you are curious about specifically how this image differs, see the Jenkins Groovy DSL scripts in the tianon/jenkins-groovy GitHub repository, which are responsible for creating the Jenkins jobs which build them.

Quick reference

What is Redis?

Redis is an open-source, networked, in-memory, key-value data store with optional durability. It is written in ANSI C. The development of Redis is sponsored by Redis Labs today; before that, it was sponsored by Pivotal and VMware. According to the monthly ranking by DB-Engines.com, Redis is the most popular key-value store. The name Redis means REmote DIctionary Server.

How to use this image

start a redis instance

$ docker run --name some-redis -d redis

This image includes EXPOSE 6379 (the redis port), so standard container linking will make it automatically available to the linked containers (as the following examples illustrate).

start with persistent storage

$ docker run --name some-redis -d redis redis-server --appendonly yes

If persistence is enabled, data is stored in the VOLUME /data, which can be used with --volumes-from some-volume-container or -v /docker/host/dir:/data (see docs.docker volumes).

For more about Redis Persistence, see http://redis.io/topics/persistence.

connect to it from an application

$ docker run --name some-app --link some-redis:redis -d application-that-uses-redis

... or via redis-cli

$ docker run -it --link some-redis:redis --rm redis redis-cli -h redis -p 6379

Additionally, If you want to use your own redis.conf ...

You can create your own Dockerfile that adds a redis.conf from the context into /data/, like so.

FROM redis
COPY redis.conf /usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf
CMD [ "redis-server", "/usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf" ]

Alternatively, you can specify something along the same lines with docker run options.

$ docker run -v /myredis/conf/redis.conf:/usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf --name myredis redis redis-server /usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf

Where /myredis/conf/ is a local directory containing your redis.conf file. Using this method means that there is no need for you to have a Dockerfile for your redis container.

32bit variant

This variant is not a 32bit image (and will not run on 32bit hardware), but includes Redis compiled as a 32bit binary, especially for users who need the decreased memory requirements associated with that. See "Using 32 bit instances" in the Redis documentation for more information.
