Hi @Babu_Santhaiah ,

You can refer the following links to connect to Redis in Power BI:

As for the speed issue, there could be several reasons why Redis might be slower than MySQL in your case:

  • Redis is a single-threaded server. It is not designed to benefit from multiple CPU cores.
  • Not enough memory, generating swapping at the OS level.
  • Too many O(n) operations (like KEYS) executed in the single-threaded engine.
  • Software-based virtualization.

Remember, while Redis is generally faster than MySQL due to its in-memory nature, it depends on the specific use case and configuration. It’s also worth noting that Redis only works on key-value pairs, which is much simpler but far from covering the normal use cases of a relational database like MySQL.
