    9.4 Summary

    In this chapter, we’ve explored a number of ways to reduce memory use in Redis using
    short data structures, sharding large structures to make them small again, and by
    packing data directly into STRINGs.

    If there’s one thing that you should take away from this chapter, it’s that by being
    careful about how you store your data, you can significantly reduce the amount of
    memory that Redis needs to support your applications.

    In the next chapter, we’ll revisit a variety of topics to help Redis scale to larger
    groups of machines, including read slaves, sharding data across multiple masters, and
    techniques for scaling a variety of different types of queries.
