The World’s Fastest Database Technology, Redis

It has been ten years since Google’s then-CEO Eric Schmidt said “Every two days now we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003.” That rate hasn’t slowed, that’s for sure. That’s why Redis Labs has made such a splash in the database world. Clocked as the world’s fastest database technology, Redis is such a game-changer it doesn’t even call itself a database. It is an “open source, in-memory Data Structure Store, which can be used as a database, a caching layer or a message broker.”

Redis supports a slew of data structures

Redis supports a wide variety of data structures, stored in their original formats, and accelerates all categories of databases including relational databases (DB2, Oracle, MySQL) Distributed Hierarchical Databases (Hadoop), and NoSQL database architectures.

Achieve up to 1.5 million operations/sec with single cloud instance

The most widely adopted in-memory NoSQL database worldwide, Redis delivers millions of operations per second at sub-millisecond latencies. This makes tasks like in-database real time analytics feasible.

RLEC extends capabilities of open source Redis

The Redis Labs Enterprise Cluster (RLEC) architecture allows for multiple databases created by multiple users across the same cluster infrastructure while keeping the databases completely isolated from one another. Replication across regions, snapshots to persistent storage, and dynamic scaling make RLEC the best solution for handling massive amounts of data.

Redis Labs RLEC designed for POWER8, CAPI, and FlashSystem

Loading massive databases entirely into RAM takes a lot of RAM, which comes at a high price-tag. How to make this affordable? IBM’s CAPI (Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface) can be coupled with FlashSystem technology to function like additional RAM. This quartet delivers matchless performance to handle complex data structures with elegance and grace in addition to sheer speed, with 70% savings or more compared to a pure RAM-based solution. RLEC’s interface lets users dynamically set the Flash/RAM ratio to optimize performance in real time.

RLEC built for the demands of the most demanding data users

Financial services, transaction processing, gaming, internet of things, e-commerce and social applications are some of the most demanding when it comes to data crunching and RLEC delivers! For more information or a demo, contact Volta.
