Our service is data-intensive, demanding a database capable of sub-millisecond reads and fully leveraging our multi-core environment. After much research and benchmarking, Dragonfly emerged as the unparalleled choice. Since then, we've experienced a significant uptick in efficiency and reliability. Dragonfly's innovative technology has not only met our high-performance expectations but has also seamlessly integrated into our existing infrastructure, allowing us to scale our services like never before.

As you've seen from the counters, I'm a very heavy user of this in-memory database technology. I've gone through Redis, KeyDB, and finally Dragonfly, and I have no doubt that it's by far the best product I've ever used.

Dragonfly is a great Redis/Memcached alternative. Native to run in Kubernetes environments, scalable and easy to use. I use it in production and have no problems 👍

Engineer Enterprise Storage

Our recent migration to Dragonfly from our Redis instance has been nothing short of transformative for our company. The transition was mostly seamless, and the robust features of Dragonfly have elevated our database management to a new level. Our throughput is no longer bottlenecked, and now we no longer have to focus on constant hardware upgrades and we can focus on changing the world.

The fact that it's a drop-in replacement for Redis in terms of APIs and libraries made the decision super easy.

Awesome support and features from Dragonfly.


Community Contributor

Dragonfly has been my drop-in replacement for Redis for a few months now. There's a lot to love. We've saved significantly on infrastructure costs due to the vertical scaling capabilities and optimizations. The support team is responsive and has solved two of our bugs within a few days. Great work Dragonfly!

One of the most significant advantages we've observed since switching to Dragonfly is the remarkable performance improvement. It has efficiently handled our large datasets and complex queries, significantly reducing data retrieval times.

Dragonfly delivers 25x the performance of legacy software 

The power of modern cloud hardware can never be realized with legacy software. Dragonfly is optimized for modern cloud computing, delivering 25x more throughput and 12x lower snapshotting latency when compared to legacy in-memory data stores like Redis, making it easy to deliver the real-time experience your customers expect.

Reduce Costs 

Scaling Redis workloads is expensive due to their inefficient, single-threaded model. Dragonfly is far more compute and memory efficient, resulting in up to 80% lower infrastructure costs.

Simplify Operations 

Dragonfly scales vertically first, only requiring clustering at extremely high scale. This results in a far simpler operational model and a more reliable system.
