We initially used Memcached for some of the caching and locking solutions we now use Redis for; we found that for the purposes of our system Memcache could not match up to Redis for performance. We also found Redis to be a bit more reliable, but that could have just been down to our different vendors.

All are good products. MongoDB is a great NoSQL DB but didn't seem to have the high performance caching of Redis. Coherence and Xtreme Scale are expensive. In my opinion for our particular use case, Redis was the clear winner.

ElastiCache also offers Redis, but it's quite cryptic and you have to pay for support separately (it's quite expensive as well), with Redis Enterprise we were able to set-up our cluster with constant support from their team, and we were even able to set-up a particular set of nodes, cluster, and shards that we needed when we migrated from our in-house solution to the cloud.

Every time you don't need a document DB, you can't go wrong with Redis over MongoDB.
Google Cloud Pub/Sub may have solved one use case, but we'd still have to deploy Redis instances for other use cases, and adding another tech stack would only add complexity to our infrastructure management.
The main competitor for Redis in the cache server space is Memcached, but it falls short on some features like data persistence and data types.

We are big users of MySQL and PostgreSQL. We were looking at replacing our aging web page caching technology and found that we could do it in SQL, but there was a NoSQL movement happening at the time. We dabbled a bit in the NoSQL scene just to get an idea of what it was about and whether it was for us. We tried a bunch, but I can only seem to remember Mongo and Couch. Mongo had big issues early on that drove us to Redis and we couldn't quite figure out how to deploy couch.

DynamoDB is a fully managed key-value store by Amazon. It provides more powerful indexing to the tables, which certainly increases the performance if searching is what you need. However, it is also a lot more expensive to use compared to Redis. If your use case is more on the basic side, Redis would be good enough and save you a lot of money.

We selected Redis over Memcached because Redis provided more client processing options and better server handling with its computations.

The two alternatives that I listed are not exact replacements for Redis, but get to the same place, in terms of what they are able to do. Redis' main advantage over CouchDB and Cassandra is speed, and for flat data structures, Redis will win every time.

Redis is great at set operations and is very fast. Riak is a fast long-term data store, but it is expensive to run. MongoDB is good for small, quick projects. Elasticsearch is great at indexing and searching. Choose the right tool for the job, and don't be afraid to implement more than one piece of technology in order to achieve maximal results.

Redis was initially in the list of competitors like Aerospike, Cassandra, MongoDB.The major point that outset all others is that it provides a number of read and writes to the database that no one can match. Another major factor is Redis really knows the basic components that we need these days, e.g. we can take mpas for geolocation, and they provide a rich set of datatypes that becomes handy.

Previously (not necessarily as solutions for this application stack) many have used alternatives including Memcached, MongoDB, CouchDB, Cassandra etc., and Redis was tested and compared to these other solutions - if only mentally. Ultimately while they are all good solutions they each target specific use cases (and support different ones better - with potential added complexity for differing feature sets), Redis was the best fit for the types of use cases we are specifically targeting it for.

About Redis

According to the vendor, Redis is an in-memory multi-model database that supports multiple data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs and geospatial indexes with radius queries. Redis has built-in replication, Lua scripting, LRU eviction, transactions and different levels of on-disk persistence, and provides high availability and automatic partitioning with Redis Cluster.

Redis combines in-memory, schema-less design with optimized data structures and versatile modules that adapt to your data needs. The result is an adept, high performance, multi-purpose database that scales easily like a simple key/value data store but delivers sophisticated functionality with great simplicity, according to the vendor.

Redis also enables data persistence and high availability through replication and backups. Redis Enterprise is built from the ground up to serve as a system of record for any application.
