Redis Labs and IBM Power Systems Integration
Redis Labs and the IBM POWER Division jointly offer a powerful Redis solution over POWER8 servers and the IBM NoSQL Data Engine. This revolutionary product runs Redis on Flash as a RAM replacement (or extension), and works with any Redis client without changing the standard Redis API.
Redis Labs on Power utilizes IBM POWER8 servers, the IBM 840 Flash System, the IBM CAPI-Flash card and the Redis Labs Enterprise Cluster (RLEC) for Flash software.
Redis Labs on POWER dramatically cuts down the deployment cost of Redis, while maintaining an all-in-RAM sub-millisecond latency. A single IBM POWER8 server with an IBM Flash System can process over 200K ops/sec with sub-millisecond latency, while storing 90% of a multi-terabyte dataset on Flash and only 10% on RAM. Deployment cost is reduced by over 70%, compared to a pure RAM-based Redis solution.
- A 4U unit supports 40TB Redis over Flash
- Flash is used as RAM extender and NOT as persistent storage
- The ratio of Flash/RAM can be adjusted by the operator from 10% RAM (and 90% Flash) to 100% RAM, and anything in between
- Redis Labs Enterprise Cluster's multi-threaded architecture is used to simultaneously access multiple Flash memory chips
- The solution features asynchronous, non-blocking operations
- It delivers over 70% cost saving on deployment infrastructure compared to RAM-based Redis solutions
