Redis Labs and IBM Power Deliver the Most Powerful NoSQL Data Engine

Redis Labs and the IBM POWER Division jointly offer a powerful Redis solution over POWER8 servers called the IBM NoSQL Data Engine. This revolutionary product runs Redis on both RAM and Flash memory used as a RAM extension, and works with any Redis client without changing the standard Redis API.

Redis Labs on POWER dramatically cuts down the deployment cost of Redis, while maintaining an all-in-RAM sub-millisecond latency. IBM POWER8 servers are equipped with a higher number of virtual cores, allowing a higher number of Redis instances to be run per server compared to industry standard x86 servers.

With a maximum throughput of 4 Million operations/second on a standard IBM POWER8 box, compared to 2.4 Million operations/second for the equivalent x86 server, the IBM solution delivers a cost savings of 96% for 67% higher throughput when running enterprise Redis in RAM.

Redis EnterpriseĀ on IBM POWER8 using a combination of RAM and IBM Flash, which is optimized for higher throughput than commodity Flash, delivers 200% higher throughput at up to 70% lower operational costs.
