Overall Satisfaction with Redis

Our organization uses data a lot. It is essential that we deal with a huge set of data and in a quick and timely fashion. Our data services in order to achieve this, we use Amazon's Redis cache. It's been working great for us and we have been using Redis for 1.5 years now. It is reliable and helps speed up our services by at least 40% and reduces the DB calls.
  • As with other service offerings from Amazon, Redis is fully managed as well and eliminates a lot of burden on our team.
  • It's easy to get hold of all the metrics as it is integrated with Cloudwatch.
  • Very quick and easy to deploy and configure the Redis services into our environment.
  • It becomes expensive over time and need to keep a close watch on the usage.
  • If the instance goes down, there is no backup preserved.
  • Over time if not managed well, the costs can be huge. Hence a constant watch on the service is essential.
  • Redis helped a great deal to bring our database costs low.
  • Our services became easy to scale with Redis.

Redis works great in our data services applications. Very easy to spin off and configure Redis and link it with our services. We have saved a lot of database downtime as we started using Redis. We now access the information directly from Redis cache instead of hitting the database for every information. We had to write a caching mechanism that suites our needs. We refresh the cache on a timely basis to make sure it has the latest data from the database.
