Redis is awesome
Comments: Redis is a basic, but extremely fast, key-value storage. We made a decision to use Redis because our use case didn't require a full blown database. We needed something to hold the data temporarily and loss of that data wouldn't lead to any issues. Redis was perfectly fitting our use case, and since then we are a bunch of happy Redis users.
Pros: - Being a non-SQL database, it does not require any structure. Perfect for unstructured data like key-value pairs. - Redis is extremely fault tolerant. As soon as we write a record, it gets saved to the disk, without any performance issues. - Redis is very lightweight. In docker it takes less than 30MB, so it is so easy to run multiple containers in cluster without taking too much power. - Redis has a very good query API, and they are in their website each operation is clearly mentioned with its time complexity. This gives you a clear picture of performance. We didn't in fact do any performance testing because we trusted their site with all the information. - Redis has a very strong community around it. We have never found an issue for which a solution didn't exist beforehand.
Cons: A cluster in Redis was a little hard to understand and deploy, but this is a one time thing to learn, no worries.

Redis Enterprise - OSS or Enterprise
Comments: Overall, I would really appreciate the Redis Enterprise engagement especially the support as that is something (apart from cluster support) which really makes it shine.
The pros over other solutions and its open source versions include:
1) On the fly scaling
Scale to more/less cores and memory as and when needed. 2) Cluster support
Support for clusters unlike the OSS version where the cap is on 1 core and fixed memory. 3) High availability & automatic failover
Redis enterprise manages the failover internally, so no crashes. 4) Predefined SLAs
A mandatory spec definition required by most enterprise customers 5) Monitoring, alerts, etc all such services are available
Get notifications on configurable events
Cons: Well, the pricing may not be very well suited for small companies which are low on budget. Not really a con as the open source version does most of the things except for the cluster support on the technical side of things.

The nearly perfect cache
Comments: We're caching mostly everything now in Redis. Performace has ski-rocketed,ans the database decoupling has also improved application resilience and reliability.
Pros: Redis is a very flexible key-value store, allowing a lot of different data types. You can set a TTL for each key, you an have replica stores, you can set up a Pub/Sub, you can persist to disk, and all this in memory, with blazing fast performance and unbeatable reliability.
Cons: No database known to men can, to this date, provide consistent transactions, partition tolerance and high availability. Redis is no exception here.

Redis is super fast in-memory cache
Comments: We are using Redis to provide faster response rate by storing and retrieving data from redis. We also use redis to process our background jobs. Benefit i received from using redis is speed and reliability.
Pros: Redis is high performance open source in-memory cache. Redis is my favorite choice to store data into cache. Cache can be used in multiple use cases like session storage, page caching, temporary data caching for faster speed. Redis supports various data types: Lists , Sorted sets , hash tables, bitmaps, hyperloglogs and geospatial indexes. Redis provides secure and high availability service.
Cons: It is tricky and time taking process to setup redis for production environment if using to process background jobs.

Benefits Accrued by integrating Redis as a Cache storage .
Comments: The fact that Redis boasts of more than a billion downloads means that if you have a problem you are most likely not the first person to come across it. And with its massive online community your problem gets sorted quickly. For newbies, I highly recommend visiting Redis university website for online tutorials with practical applications of Redis data structures.
Pros: Redis has many benefits one of them being speed, reliability, and extensibility. Redis as a cache storage optimizes the fetching of data to and from the main storage. I also like the fact that with every Redis version that gets released a number of commands are added which simplifies work.
Cons: Redis to me has made my job simpler having not used any other product for a cache storage before am a Happy Redis user.

Simply put Redis is fastest and easiest to use data storage software I've ever used.
Comments: Faster development times and easy database scaling.
Pros: It's fast, reliable, and easy to use. The added support and scalability of Redis Enterprise allows an already easy to use solution to scale to solve any problem.
Cons: Redis has some limitations with how it stores its data in order to achieve such great performance. Often times this trade off is well worth it for something that works as fast as Redis.

Absolute non-avoidable piece of your software solution
Comments: couple of years back I started using redis, I was new to redis, datastructure, lua script, hosting, clustering but their technical team helped us to design the architecture using their services and guiding to build best practices
Pros: Redis enterprise gain big confidence in market with their ready solutions build on redis database. these ready solutions and new data structures are helping to build software applications much faster and with great performances
Cons: Costing is little high, but if you are getting best solutions with less time to go to market then why not pay?

Comments: In general I'm very pleased with the software and it meets the needs I need - a good opportunity to say thank you!
I use this software to manage all user data in our apps at the company:
Software that works very simply with a real-time update of our user status in the app.
It's very easy to update users' data.
Sometimes information from certain keys can not be cross-referenced.
The filters sometimes do not work at all (or not well).

Comments: The overall experience has been good. We use it for storing/accessing user sessions and it has met our needs very well with little cost.
Pros: It is fairly simple to get up and running and extremely cost effective. Beyond those base points, it scales extremely well and performance is great.
Cons: The documentation is not very good at all when it comes to the available commands. It is a difficult task to learn how to use Redis from the documentation.

Perfect default chose for high load solutions
Pros: Redis as probably everyone know - simple and simply works. As it simple it's easy to start using it by new developers. Simply work means that it requires minimum it support.
Cons: So no Cons actually. Just like with any solution it's not a Silver bullet. Learn about it and read documentation and use cases. Know when is better to not use it.
