Redis

I’ve been aware of a number of so called nosql projects (databases that aren’t relational) for some time and I finally have an¬†opportunity¬†to use one for a good reason.

Redis is an extremely fast key-value pair database (a hash table basically) that also includes fast, atomic set and list operations. I’m planning to use it as part of my group software project at uni, the project requires us to handle large amounts of data with a large number of requests per second, which makes 110,000 writes per second (one of the features of Redis) very appealing.
