Mountain View, Calif., February 18, 2016—Redis Labs, the home of Redis, and HealthStream, a leading provider of workforce, patient experience and provider solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that they will be presenting at IBM InterConnect 2016, the premier cloud and mobile conference, on Feb. 21-25, at the MGM Grand & Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Brent Holliman, Director of Product Architecture at HealthStream, will share how Redis Labs accelerated application response times for its learning management system application. Redis Labs’ VP Product Marketing, Leena Joshi, will discuss how such high performance and low latencies can be achieved for any application, at over 70% lower costs using Redis Labs Enterprise Cluster (RLEC) on Flash with IBM Power 8 and CAPI Flash. Redis Labs was an ideal solution for HealthStream’s extremely high throughput requirements due to its stable high performance, true high availability as well as seamless scaling capabilities.
