Vert.x Discovery Backend - Redis

The service discovery has a plug-able backend using the ServiceDiscoveryBackend SPI.

This is an implementation of the SPI based on Redis.

Using the Redis backend

To use the Redis backend, add the following dependency to the dependencies section of your build descriptor:

  • Maven (in your pom.xml):

  • Gradle (in your build.gradle file):

compile 'io.vertx:vertx-service-discovery-backend-redis:3.3.3'

Be aware that you can have only a single implementation of the SPI in your classpath. If none, the default backend is used.


The backend is based on the vertx-redis-client. The configuration is the client configuration as well as key indicating in which key on Redis the records are stored.

Here is an example:

ServiceDiscovery.create(vertx, new ServiceDiscoveryOptions()
        new JsonObject()
            .put("host", "")
            .put("key", "records")
