Redis is an easy to use, high speed key-value store that can be used as a database, cache, and message broker. It supports a range of data structures including strings, lists, hashes, sets, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, and geospatial indexes. It is easy to install and configure and is popular with engineers as a straightforward NoSQL data store. It is used for everything from a quick way to store data for development and testing through to enterprise-scale apps like Twitter.
Redis for PCF packages Redis for easy deployment and operability on Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF). Redis for PCF can be used as a datastore or cache. Metrics and logging enable operators to monitor Redis health. Operators can configure scheduled backups to a variety of destinations. There are manual backup and restore scripts for individual service instances. New features are regularly introduced. Upgrading Redis for PCF is straightforward and preserves configuration and data.
