JSON as a native data type in Redis

RedisJSON provides fast in-memory manipulation of JSON documents at high velocity and volume. With RedisJSON, you can natively store document data in a hierarchical, tree-like format to scale and query documents efficiently, significantly improving performance over storing and manipulating JSON with Lua and core Redis data structures.

Main capabilities

JSON standard as Redis data type

Implement ECMA-404 (the JSON Data Interchange Standard) as a native data type. RedisJSON allows you to store, update, manipulate, and fetch JSON values from Redis keys (documents).

Server-side atomic operations

Reduce response times and improve efficiency by eliminating special serialization or deserialization of JSON objects. RedisJSON outperforms any other technique for storing JSON object in Redis, such as using Lua for manipulating JSON or msgpack objects.
