⇨ Redis Storage Strategies Benchmark

April 11, 2012

An analysis of using Redis to store data by my former colleague Brice Laurencin:

Do not over think your data schema when storing to Redis, it is faster than you may think, and a simple software compression may help you contain your data growth.

I have used a little Redis for a pet project and it is a great key/value store. Its sorted set data structure is invaluable to store time-based data.
