This topic describes the test settings that are used to benchmark the performance of storage-optimized instances of ApsaraDB for Redis Enhanced Edition (Tair).


Storage-optimized instances of ApsaraDB for Redis Enhanced Edition (Tair) are developed based on enhanced solid-state disks (ESSDs) and are compatible with core data structures and interfaces of open source Redis. These instances can provide large-capacity, low-cost, and persistent database services. Storage-optimized instances reduce costs and improve data reliability. In addition, storage-optimized instances reduce the amount of reserved memory that is required for the forks of native Redis databases. These instances apply to scenarios that store warm and cold data, and that require compatibility with open source Redis, large capacity, and high access performance. For more information, see Storage-optimized instances.

Test environment
