Redis™ Sentinel provides a simple and automatic high availability (HA) solution for Redis. If you’re familiar with how MongoDB® elections work, this isn’t too far off. To start, you have a given primary replicating to a certain number of replicas. From there, you have Sentinel daemons running, either on your application servers or the servers on which Redis is running. These keep track of the primary’s health.
