ApsaraCache for Administrators Training Course


ApsaraCache is a fork of Redis, the cloud-based in-memory data structure store that is commonly used as a database, cache and a message broker. ApsaraCache solves stability bottlenecks caused by frequent AOF Rewrite with time-based recovery to precision in seconds. It also solved the syncing problem when there’s a patchy connection.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at admins who wish to set up, deploy and manage a AsparaCache database.
