Redis Enterprise was the Naturally Fitting Choice

Pixlee’s photo and album data, as with real-time analytics data, are stored in several tables in a PostgreSQL database for reporting and analytics. Because of these demands, an up-to-date and reliable in-memory database along with caching is crucial to the company’s survival. By choosing Redis Enterprise, an in-memory database, was a natural fit for Pixlee’s Ruby-on-Rails applications.
