The Edge Computing Database for the IoT Edge

RedisEdge from Redis Labs is a purpose-built database for the demanding conditions at the IoT edge. It has the ability to ingest millions of writes per second with <1ms latency and a very small footprint (<5MB), so it can reside on a variety of edge devices and sensors ranging from ARM32 to x64 based hardware. RedisEdge is fully compatible with Redis Enterprise, making it ideal to extend the solution to the Cloud for hybrid computing.

Unburden from the complexities of the IoT Edge environment

Redis Labs has partnered with the top emerging leaders in the IoT edge platform space, EdgeX Foundry and Azure IoT Edge, to bring RedisEdge to their users. EdgeX Foundry is a Linux Foundation project with more than 70 member companies, and provides an open source IoT edge platform to make it easy for anyone to develop IoT edge applications.

Edgex with Redis

RedisEdge is also available as a module for Azure IoT Edge, so it is easy for IoT application developers using Azure IoT services to leverage the power of Redis. Azure IoT Edge with RedisEdge helps business focus on insights instead of data management. Solutions are configured and deployed via standard containers and monitored from the cloud.

A Purpose-built Database

In the wild of the IoT edge environment, there are many diverse conditions and requirements that will tax any database trying to provide data services. There will inevitably be multiple data models involved (e.g. time series, graph), and edge computing involving deep learning, image recognition, as well as other complex computing requirements. RedisEdge is a multi-model database with the ability to handle the various data models gracefully, removing the complexities of polyglot persistence architecture.

RedisEdge supports all 10 native Redis data structures, including the recently announced Streams data structure, providing the ultimate flexibility and simplicity for application developers.

Purpose Built

IoT edge application developers should not have to deal with the complexities of the IoT edge stack, including messaging and networking protocols. With RedisEdge embedded in EdgeX Core Services and Azure IoT Edge platforms, application developers can focus on their applications and business needs, and leave the data services and platform to us, partnered with the leading IoT edge platform providers.
