Overall Satisfaction with Redis
We use Redis to cache huge responses received from 3rd party services in our Backend to Frontend (BFF) layer, to improve performance and loading time in the frontend single page web application. It is used to cache pricing, product data which would stay fixed for a given amount of time. We were able to drastically reduce the loading time of pages in the frontend due to this caching mechanism using Redis.
- Error resilient
- Easy to use
- Learning curve is steep
- Developing in a local environment can be difficult.
- Huge savings on loading time in applications.
- Additional cost in hosting Redis servers in AWS.
