Redis Storage Driver Design (Zaqar)

Revision as of 04:35, 9 August 2014 by Prashanthr (talk | contribs) (Blueprints)


Redis is an in memory key-value datastore which can organize data as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets, bitmaps and hyperloglogs. Being In-memory makes it in ideal candidate for high load, low latency messages.

The main use cases of the driver are listed below:

1. High-throughput (2K+ messages/sec per queue)

2. Lots of small messages (<= 1K)

3. Messages are short-lived (minutes, not hours)

4. High durability is optional (2 copies, RAM only)

5. HA is still very important
