To connect Redis with a service in a Node.js application running in a Kubernetes cluster, you can follow these steps:

  1. Deploy Redis in your Kubernetes cluster by creating a Redis deployment and service.
  2. Update your Node.js application's code to connect to the Redis service using the Kubernetes service DNS name and port.
  3. Use environment variables or configuration files to store the Redis service host and port configurations in your Node.js application. Retrieve these values dynamically to ensure seamless connectivity.
  4. Ensure that your Node.js application is running in the same Kubernetes cluster as the Redis service. You can achieve this by deploying your Node.js application as a Kubernetes deployment or pod.
  5. Test the connection between your Node.js application and the Redis service by running your application in the Kubernetes cluster and monitoring the communication between the two services.


By following these steps, you can successfully connect Redis with a service in a Node.js application running in a Kubernetes cluster.
