In the fifth part of our blog series, we explain step by step how to integrate Redis into Magento. Which preparations have to be made, which code blocks have to be inserted and how Redis is activated in maxcluster.
Redis is a complex service. Therefore, several preparatory steps should be taken for the integration into Shopware. In this blog post we explain step by step how to integrate Redis into Shopware.
Which form of session storage leads to better performance in online shops? File system, memory or database? In our sessions benchmark, we measured and evaluated the write, read and change operations per second of Redis, NVMe SSDs and MySQL.
Which form of application cache leads to more performance in e-commerce: the use of Redis, memcached or NVMe SSDs? We carried out a benchmark and measured the throughput of write, read and delete operations per second.
Online shops that have many visitors generate many shopping baskets, from which sessions are generated. The sessions can be stored in different ways. In the first part of the blog series on Redis, we summarised the advantages that the NoSQL database Redis offers in the area of sessions and application cache for the performance of Shopware and Magento.

Nowadays, data centres have to meet the highest German security standards so that the customer can be guaranteed the best possible quality and reliability at all times. maxcluster goes one step further: we guarantee that the data is located exclusively in Germany and that you can access it at any time. The multi-level security concept is even used by banks with very high requirements.
DDoS attacks have increased in frequency and bandwidth volume. Even the coding platform GitHub was attacked and hit by the strongest DDoS attack ever measured. We protect our customers from DDoS attacks at the network level and use Voxility's service for this. We have summarised important information about this protection in the article.
Three of the most important profilers in e-commerce are Blackfire IO, Tideways and New Relic APM. The comparison clearly shows where the strengths of the individual tools lie.
