Integrating Redis Cache and CDN on Azure
The course is part of these learning paths
This course provides an overview of Redis Cache and how to create a Redis Cache instance in Azure. With Redis Cache deployed in Azure, we’ll then connect an application to the cache.
Next, we’ll walk through the process of storing and retrieving data in Redis Cache. After covering Redis Cache, we’ll walk through an overview of what CDN is and what it’s used for. We’ll then develop some code for leveraging CDN. As we wrap up the course, we’ll cover the process for invalidating data in both Redis Cache and in a CDN.
This course is intended for IT professionals who are interested in earning Azure certification and those who need to incorporate Redis Cache or CDN into their solutions. To get the most from this course, you should have at least a moderate understanding of what caching is and why it’s used.
By the end of this course, you should have a good understanding of what Redis Cache and CDN are and what purposes they serve. You’ll also know how to connect to each from applications and how to purge or invalidate data in both.
- [Instructor] You will sometimes find yourself in a spot where you need to invalidate the data in your Redis cache. Doing so is pretty straightforward right from the Azure Portal. So, what I wanted to do in this really, really brief demonstration is show you how to open the console for the Redis cache in Azure Portal and issue a flushall command to empty out the Redis cache. On the screen here, you see that I'm in my Redis resource group and I have my Redis cache here. What I'm going to do is open my Redis cache and then click on Console. From here, I can simply flush my cache by issuing a flushall command. And that's it. It's a rather straightforward process that you can do right from the Azure Portal.
