Redis Labs Acquires Redis Weekly to Further Extend Support to the Redis Community

Redis Labs continues to invest in training and education to foster growth of the Redis community

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. April 10, 2017

Redis Labs, the home of Redis and provider of Redis Enterprise, today announced that it has acquired Redis Weekly. A free, weekly email round-up of Redis news, articles, tools and libraries, Redis Weekly will merge into Redis Watch – a newsletter about everything Redis curated by Redis Labs’ Itamar Haber.

“Since launching in 2013, it’s been a goal to serve developers with the latest news impacting the community and we’re honored to have thousands of the most talented developers subscribed to our newsletter,” said François-Guillaume Ribreau, publisher of Redis Weekly. “Merging with Redis Watch is a natural fit and guarantees the community will continue to see high-quality content, especially considering that Redis Labs is the home of Redis.”

Over the last several years, Redis Labs has taken steps to strengthen its support for the Redis community including acquiring MyRedis, a hosted Redis provider, and bringing Redis creator, Salvatore Sanfilippo, to lead open source development at Redis Labs. This cultivation of the Redis community has helped Redis become the most loved database, the number one database on Docker, the number one database on AWS and the recipient of industry accolades like InfoWorld’s 2017 Technology of the Year Award.

“We’re thrilled to welcome the Redis Weekly readers to our community,” said Itamar Haber, Chief OSS Education Officer at Redis Labs. “As the home of Redis, we’re dedicated to offering value and insight on all things Redis. Redis Weekly subscribers will now get their Redis updates through Redis Watch.”
