Redis on Flash now also delivered as Redis Cloud Private (RCP), brings unprecedented cost savings to customers using Redis for large datasets
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif, August 11, 2016 at 05:00 a.m. PT
Redis Labs, home of Redis, and Intel today announced at the AWS Summit in New York that they have collaboratively benchmarked a throughput of 3 million database operations/second at under 1 millisecond of latency, while generating over 1GB NVMe throughput, on a single server with Redis on Flash and Intel NVMe-based SSDs.
“Redis on Flash combines the power of Redis with the cost-effective, high-performance of Flash memory. This benchmark showcases the high-performance at significantly lower costs achievable with next generation memory technologies and Redis Labs,” said Yiftach Shoolman, co-founder and CTO at Redis Labs. “In a world where extracting insights from data rapidly is increasingly critical, this combination gives modern enterprises a very compelling solution for their mission critical applications.”
Redis on Flash allows Redis to run optimally with Flash memory used as a RAM extender. As Redis deployments expand both in size and use case variety, challenges posed by the cost of memory can be overcome with advanced memory technologies like Intel NVMe Flash. These deliver memory-like performance, at one-tenth the cost of DRAM. Redis on Flash makes the versatility of Redis cost-effective for an even broader set of use cases. Examples include throughput requirements ranging from extremely high to moderately high (millions of operations per second to hundreds of thousands of operations per second) and latency requirements extending from extremely low to moderately low (sub-millisecond to millisecond) or any combination in between.
“Intel’s next-generation memory technology will allow many times the latency improvements seen in these NAND-based tests, which will allow greater scale and consistency, so that data tiers such as what Redis Labs has developed will continue to blur the lines of what non-volatile memory can do for efficient caching and data persistence strategies,” said Frank Ober, data center solution architect at Intel.

Redis Cloud Private (RCP) is a fully-managed cloud service for running Redis datasets in AWS virtual private clouds (VPCs). RCP delivers cost-effective, secure, high-performance Redis on dedicated clusters, with the option to allocate use case appropriate datasets between RAM and Flash (using high IOPS SSD instances), in a highly-available and scalable manner.
Redis Labs and Intel will present the benchmark data results at AWS New York taking place Aug. 11. Frank Ober and Yiftach Shoolman will co-present at the session, “Cost savings at high performance with Redis Labs and AWS,” and Erez Schwarz of Redis Labs will lead the Partner Session, “Redis on Flash – Cost-Effective In-Memory High Performance with AWS SSD instances.” Attendees can also visit the Redis Labs booth #315 to get additional details.
