Question: Why should one choose Redis Enterprise?

Answer

Redis Enterprise is an extension of open-source Redis that provides enterprise-grade capabilities. There are several reasons to choose Redis Enterprise:

  1. Scalability: Redis Enterprise can auto-shard datasets across multiple Redis instances and supports up to hundreds of terabytes of data.

  2. Performance: Redis Enterprise improves the already fast performance of open-source Redis by using multi-threaded proxy architecture, making it an excellent choice for high-demand applications.

  3. Durability: It provides both asynchronous and synchronous disk persistence and even cross-datacenter replication, ensuring data won't be lost in case of a failure.

  4. Active-Active Geo Distribution: This allows you to write to any location worldwide with local latency and ensures global dataset consistency.

  5. Operational Simplicity: Redis Enterprise simplifies many operational aspects, offering automated provisioning, scaling, failure recovery, and on-the-go software updates.

  6. Expert Support: With Redis Enterprise, you get 24/7 support from the company that maintains Redis itself.

Remember, the decision to use Redis Enterprise should be based on your particular business requirements and demands.
