InstaBlinks: Redis—The Most Popular In-Memory Database Technology

In this seventh episode of InstaBlinks, Thomas Griffiths, Product Manager at Instaclustr, talks about Redis—the most popular in-memory database technology. 

Redis is often called a data structure server because its core data types are similar to those found in programming languages, such as strings, lists, dictionaries (or hashes), sets, and sorted sets. It also provides many other data structures and features for approximate counting, geolocation, and stream processing. Learn more about Redis here.
