Application of Redis database in charging pile system

Redis is an in-memory No SQL (full name Not Only SQL, referring to a non-relational database) database.


As the number of electric vehicles increases, a variety of different needs arise. As a result, the backend systems of managed charging piles have become increasingly complex, requiring efficient data storage and processing to meet these needs. Among them, the Redis database has become an important part of the charging pile system with its fast, scalable, and high-performance characteristics. This article will briefly discuss the application of the Redis database in the charging pile management system and how it improves the efficiency and reliability of the system.

The following are several application directions of the Redis database in the system:

How Redis is typically used

1. Accelerate queries as a cache: improve the speed of information acquisition

In the charging pile system, frequently queried data will be stored in Redis as a cache, which can not only reduce the burden of traditional databases but also increase the reading speed of popular data and improve the speed of system operation. For example, during the charging process of charging piles, a large amount of charging data will be uploaded. Charging pile information data, order data, etc. will be read frequently, so these data can be stored in Redis to effectively improve the operating efficiency of the system.

2. Counters and timers: accurate statistics and billing

In the charging pile system, accurate statistics on charging times, charging time, and other data are very important. Redis can provide efficient counter and timer functions, which can help the system accurately record the user’s charging times and charging time. To improve the efficiency of data statistics and improve user experience.

3. Support persistent data storage: prevent data loss

Although Redis is an in-memory database, it also supports persisting data to disk to prevent data loss due to power outages due to system abnormalities due to the characteristics of the system. In the charging pile system, this feature is very important, as it can ensure the security of charging important data.

4. Distributed locks: avoid concurrency problems

In the charging pile system, it is very easy to face concurrency problems due to important operations such as user charging transactions. As the system expands, the multi-node high-availability load balancing mode will also face concurrency and transaction processing problems. Redis’s distributed lock can effectively solve such problems and ensure the stable operation of the system.

Through the above-mentioned multiple applications, the Redis database can give full play to its superior performance and characteristics in the charging pile management system. It can not only improve the query efficiency and statistical efficiency of the system but also support data persistence and distributed locks to ensure data integrity and security. These improvements can bring a better charging experience to users who own electric vehicles.

All in all, the reasonable application of the Redis database in the charging pile management system can not only improve the charging experience of users but also improve the efficiency of the system for operators and promote the sustainable development of electric vehicle travel.
