Does a multicore Redis database has any benefits?

Hi, it’s well known that Redis is single threaded, so the question rises, should I spin up multiple small Redis database instances(used mostly for pub/sub function) or a large one?

Hi @deeldata,

It really depends on the usage and what you want to achieve. I’m by no means an expert and have used Redis on few occasions however I’ve always used a larger one rather than multiple database instances. In my experience, I’ve had to work with a small amount of data that I just wanted to access instantly.
