Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced in-memory key-value store where keys can contain data structures such as strings,
hashes, lists, sets, and sorted sets. Redis Can be used as Database, a Caching layer or a Message broker.
Following in the footsteps of other NoSQL databases, such as Cassandra, CouchDB, and MongoDB, Redis allows the user to store vast amounts of data without the limits of a relational database.
History – In Early 2009 – Salvatore Sanfilippo, an Italian developer,
started the Redis project.At that time. He was working on a real-time web analytics solution and found that MySQL could not provide
the necessary performance. June 2009 – Redis was deployed
in production for the LLOOGG real-time web analytics website
March 2010 – VMWare hired Sanfilippo to work full-time on Redis (remains BSD licensed) Subsequently, VMWare hired Pieter Noordhuis, a major Redis contributor, to assist on the project.
