Redis Labs, the home of Redis and provider of Redis Enterprise, has announced that Redis Enterprise is now available for Intel Optane DC persistent memory across multiple cloud services or as downloadable software for supported hardware from companies participating in Intel’s hardware beta program.

Redis Enterprise gives developers the flexibility to choose between the two modes of operation offered by Intel Optane DC persistent memory. Using Memory Mode, Redis Enterprise-powered applications can achieve comparable performance to DRAM with significant cost benefits. Developers can achieve even greater cost savings using AppDirect mode with Redis Enterprise, while still delivering significantly faster performance compared to NVMe.

The combination of Redis Enterprise and Intel Optane DC persistent memory enables customers to scale to multi-terabytes of data at a much more attractive price point than alternate solutions. Redis Enterprise’s multi-model capabilities which encompass core data structures (including the new Redis Streams) and modules (ReJSON, RedisGraph and RediSearch) all perform at a sub-millisecond response time for any operation with persistent memory. Additionally, Redis Enterprise can be deployed in an active-active (CRDT-based) manner across geo-regions, while keeping a similar cost structure of much slower databases.

“We’ve worked closely with Intel’s engineering teams to address real-world challenges we see across more than 750,000 Redis Enterprise databases under our management,” said Yiftach Shoolman, Co-founder and CTO at Redis Labs. “Traditionally, Redis users have split their dataset across multiple databases to avoid the relatively high deployment cost associated with high-memory (DRAM) capacity servers. Redis Enterprise, in combination with Intel Optane DC persistent memory, allows developers to simplify their database deployment by keeping the entire dataset in a single multi-model database-Redis and keep the cost structure similar to disk-based databases, while enjoying sub-millisecond response time at any scale for simple and complex use cases.”

“Intel and Redis Labs have collaborated in the development of next-generation memory technologies beginning with NVMe to persistent memory today,” said Alper Ilkbahar, Vice President and General Manager, Data Centre Memory and Storage Solutions at Intel. “With its deep technical knowledge of customers’ high-performance data tier architecture, Redis Labs has optimised Redis Enterprise to leverage the benefits of Intel Optane DC persistent memory to meet the needs of our customers.”
