Installing Redis on Azure Ubuntu VM

I feel comfortable on terminal/command line, so it wasn’t hard to have an Ubuntu VM on VirtualBox, and it is very helpful to have it running on cloud if you need a testing site; nevertheless, there are several commands you need to remember to install it properly. Because of this, I created the following video installing Redis on an Ubuntu VM on Microsoft Azure. Here the details:
