This year Redis continues to rack up milestones. A few days ago we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Salvatore Sanfilippo first posting a link on Hacker News about starting the Redis project. Now coming fresh off our fifth annual – and biggest ever RedisConf—we are thrilled to receive the news that Redis has been named the most loved database in Stack Overflow’s 2019 Developer Survey for the third consecutive year!
In this year’s survey, Redis significantly increased its share of developers as the database they want to continue working with, up nearly seven percent to 71.3% of the total respondents. Redis continues to be the sixth most commonly used database and the fourth most wanted database.
We truly appreciate this recognition because this feedback comes directly from the developer community. This is significant because everything we do begins with us asking ourselves, “How will this help the Redis community?”
This year Stack Overflow received nearly 89,000 responses from developers in 179 countries. In combination with more than 1.5 billion launches on Docker Hub, it is exciting to see Redis continue to gain widespread love and adoption by developers worldwide.
Additionally we continue to innovate and develop Redis to be the high performance, multi-model database developers must have to build the fastest and most powerful applications. This year we’ve seen amazing industry recognition of these new capabilities including:
- Named by Forrester a Leader in Big Data NoSQL Platforms
- InfoWorld 2019 Technology of the Year
- 2019 Devies Award for Best Innovation in Data Development
