Redis is an in-memory data structure store, used as a distributed, in-memory key-value database, cache, and message broker, with optional durability. Redis supports different kinds of abstract data structures, such as strings, lists, maps, sets, sorted sets, HyperLogLogs, bitmaps, streams, and spatial indices. Redis can be used with streaming solutions such as Apache Kafka and Amazon Kinesis as an in-memory data store to ingest, process, and analyze real-time data with sub-millisecond latency. Redis is an ideal choice for real-time analytics use cases such as social media analytics, ad targeting, personalization, and IoT.

Is Redis better than MongoDB?

Redis handles large volumes of workload more comfortably as compared to MongoDB. Redis is single-threaded which means it runs on a single core. So, in terms of performance, Redis is slightly better than MongoDB. MongoDB is also known to respond slowly once it is bound by the CPU. MongoDB is a document-oriented, disk-based database optimized for operational simplicity, schema-free design and very large data volumes. Redis is an in-memory, persistent data structure store that enables developers to perform common operations with minimal complexity and maximum performance.

What is Redis vs SQL?

Redis offers memory efficiency, fast operating speed, and high availability, and provides some features like tunability, replication, clustering, etc. 2. MS SQL Server: Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that is platform-dependent and it is both GUI and command-based software. Redis also does not support Triggers, while MySQL allows Triggers. While MySQL supports the XML data format, Redis does not. When concerning indexes, both allow them. However, MySQL supports secondary indexes without any restrictions while Redis only supports secondary indexes with the research module.

Which is faster Redis or MySQL?

In terms of the efficiency of updating databases, Redis is superior to MySQL while SQLite is the slowest. However, in terms of the efficiency of querying from databases, SQLite seems to be about ten times faster than Redis and MySQL.
