Overall Satisfaction with Redis

Redis is currently being used in silo within my company. Our department was one of the first groups to use it as part of the software modernization initiative.
  • Caching strategy
  • Redis is not a panacea for fast and quick access to the frequently used data. There were times the development team had to go back to JVM cache to achieve the use case.
  • Maintaining Redis as a separate persistence has its price ( in operation and maintenance).
  • HA and DR was a biggest challenge with the widespread adoption of Redis
  • Increased Architectural Complexity: The system now has an additional component in the ecosystem.
  • Extra technical skill for developers/Support team to learn.
  • It addressed immediate system challenges in performance by centrally caching data that could not be distributed across all of the JVMs because of volume.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Don't expect Redis to replace your SQL/ NoSQL persistence layer altogether. It's very tempting to think that Redis can turbo boost your web application to Utopia, but be very judicious in selecting what Redis can do for you. There is always a price to bring an additional component into your ecosystem.
