The cache in the United Manufacturing Hub is Redis, a key-value store that is used as a cache for the other microservices.

How it works

Recently used data is stored in the cache to reduce the load on the database. All the microservices that need to access the database will first check if the data is available in the cache. If it is, it will be used, otherwise the microservice will query the database and store the result in the cache.

By default, Redis is configured to run in standalone mode, which means that it will only have one master node.
