|High performance in-memory data grid platform, powering three products: Smart Cache, Smart ODS (Operational Data Store), Smart Augmented Transactions
|Popular in-memory data platform used as a cache, message broker, and database that can be deployed on-premises, across clouds, and hybrid environments Redis focuses on performance so most of its design decisions prioritize high performance and very low latencies.
|Embeddable persistent key-value store optimized for fast storage (flash and RAM)
|Primary database model
Object oriented DBMS Values are user defined objects
|Key-value store Multiple data types and a rich set of operations, as well as configurable data expiration, eviction and persistence
|Secondary database models
|Document store with RedisJSON
Graph DBMS with RedisGraph
Search engine with RediSearch
Time Series DBMS with RedisTimeSeries
