On the console, you can view the list of IDs of the instances you have purchased.
Master-Slave dual-node instance This is an ApsaraDB for Redis instance that adopts a master-slave architecture. Master-slave dual-node instances provide limited capacity and performance.
High-performance cluster instance This is an ApsaraDB for Redis instance that adopts a scalable cluster architecture. Cluster instances have better scalability and performance, but are functionally limited to a certain extent.
Connection address This is the host address used to connect to ApsaraDB for Redis. It is displayed as domain name, and can be found at Instance Information > Connection Information.
Connection password This is the password used to connect to ApsaraDB for Redis. The password format is Instance ID:custom password. For example, if you set the password as 1234 when you make the purchase and the allocated instance ID is xxxx, then the connection password will be xxxx:1234.
