Visit Redis Labs at AWS re:Invent 2019

Eric Castellanos by Eric Castellanos

To kick off the final month of 2019, some 65,000 cloud professionals will descend on Las Vegas for the industry event of the year, AWS re:Invent, a four-day extravaganza of keynote speakers, networking, learning, and training. 

As always, Redis Labs will have a big presence at re:Invent. This year, we’re all in on the theme of Growth Happens. As your company and database needs grow, Redis Enterprise offers the best options for running Redis—one of the most widely used databases in AWS and the most loved by developers everywhere. To signify our focus on sustainable growth, we’ll have green-themed offerings, like our exclusive “Growth Happens” t-shirts and tree-planting initiative.

More importantly, the Growth Happens theme will also resonate in our breakout session on Thursday afternoon, December 5, where top customers will share how they’re using Redis Enterprise for more than just caching. At our booth (#2637 in the Venetian), the “green” swag will be complemented with an ongoing series of on-site educational presentations, plus the chance for one-on-one conversations with Redis experts at our Genius Bar. But that’s only the beginning—don’t miss the Redis Labs’ cocktail hour or our action-packed sumo wrestling event with Sumo Logic. And keep your eyes peeled for the new Redis Labs billboards appearing around town during the show!

Don’t miss our breakout session

Learn about how customers like Gap and Alliance Data are using Redis Enterprise to grow their businesses during this one-hour session, moderated by Alvin Richards, our Chief Product Officer. We’ll discuss how to grow your use of Redis beyond caching and session management to business-critical applications like real-time inventory management.

Name: DAT374-S – Using Redis beyond caching

Location: MGM, Level 1, Grand Ballroom 124

Date/time: Thursday, Dec. 5, 12:15 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.

We’re also hosting a series of educational sessions in our booth theater throughout the week with our Redis experts. As a bonus, attend a theater session and grab a “Growth Happens” t-shirt. Or get in the green spirit and have us plant a tree in your honor—we’ll match every tree donated.
