Redis::Directory assumes a Redis installation running on a default port and database 0 that will contain connection information for various other Redis databases. For example, if you were using a Redis database to store the content of cached pages, and this was running on a cluster of two Redis instances, with multiple applications connecting partitioned by database, then your connection might look like this: require "redis" require "redis/distributed" # The ACME Corp database is #27 cache = "redis://redis.example:4400/27", "redis://redis.example:4401/27" Redis::Directory uses a centralized Redis database to store the connection information so you don't have to remember "magic numbers" for each client/database mapping, and can easily update port-numbers/hostnames, cluster-members as necessary. The same connection with Redis::Directory would look like this: require "redis_directory" cache ="redis.example").connect("cache", "acme")
