Modules reduce complexity by reducing the number of specialized databases required by enterprises. Simple to deploy, they provide the additional advantages of low operational overhead with fewer hardware resources needed to deliver advanced functionality at high performance. Modules allow quality applications to be delivered faster, eliminating the need for individual specialty databases.

Organized by Redis Labs, RedisConf2016 highlighted the breadth of use cases and usage of Redis in organizations of all sizes globally. Attendees had the opportunity to learn from key Redis contributors and dive deep into Redis with the experts, share knowledge and experience with community members, and network with data scientists, developers, product managers, customers and partners that are implementing Redis in their business. Other keynotes included: Salvatore Sanfilippo, Creator of Redis; Yiftach Shoolman, Redis Labs; Bill Anderson, Rackspace; Adrian Colyer, formerly Spring Source and VMware; Laura Merling, formerly SAP; Chris Richardson, Cloud Foundry.

Additionally, RedisConf2016 attendees joined hands-on sessions and workshops that addressed Redis best practices, demos and case studies.
