DescriptionScalable TimeSeries DBMS based on CassandraHigh performant column-oriented DBMS for analytic workloads using MySQL or PostgreSQL as a frontendEmbeddable fast key-value storage library that provides an ordered mapping from string keys to string valuesGlobally distributed, horizontally scalable, multi-model database servicePopular in-memory data platform used as a cache, message broker, and database that can be deployed on-premises, across clouds, and hybrid environments infoRedis focuses on performance so most of its design decisions prioritize high performance and very low latencies.
