It’s no surprise that Redis has been one of the fastest growing databases over the last few years. But did you know Redis is tied with MySQL as the most popular database deployed in Docker containers? Earlier this summer, devops.com and ClusterHQ published a revealing container report, which called out that “MySQL and Redis virtually tied for first place” among customers using or planning to use containers.
This comes at an opportune time. We’re sponsoring LinuxCon (including ContainerCon) and ContainerDay next week in Seattle and you can be sure we will be celebrating this tidbit of news. We will also be reaching out to future partners in addition to our existing partners. If you would like to partner with us to spread Redis in containers and beyond, please visit us in booth #216 on the 2nd floor or reach out to us via @redislabs.
The first event at LinuxCon will be ContainerDay (free to all), which kicks off LinuxCon on Sunday Aug. 16th at 6pm at the Seattle Sheraton. There will be a mixer, lightning talks and even a container workshop led by Boyd Hemphill, one of the creators of the first ContainerDays. Also participating will be Cloudsoft and ClusterHQ, talking about Clocker and Flocker, respectively. If you want to find out what’s new in containers, ContainerDay will be a great way to start-off your week.
The full LinuxCon & ContainerCon event will start the following day. It features a jam-packed agenda of over 200 sessions, a developer lounge, and activities such as The New Stack pancake breakfast on Tuesday and the Mars Data Challenge organized by on Thursday.
If LinuxCon hasn’t sold out, you can get a 15% discount using code CCCD15 when you register. We hope to see you there!
