Social/Collaboration functionality in applications requires instant responsiveness, even under high volume/velocity conditions. Interactive displays of social activity require rapid-fire, inline analytics processing, difficult to achieve with SQL or NoSQL disk-based databases.

How Redise Makes This Easy

Why This is Hard With Other Databases:

Too Slow:

Most other NoSQLs are simply too slow to handle the interactivity and analytic needs of social apps

Too complex:

Using RDBMS-es or other NoSQLs requires the rather unique social functionality such as messaging, leaderboards etc to be handled at the application level, consuming time and resources

Too expensive:

Most other databases require huge amounts of resources to handle the millions of ops/sec and sub-millisecond latencies needed for real-time fraud detection

Redis Enterprise For Social Apps

Fast Time to Market:

Built-in data structures and modules in Redis Enterprise such as Lists and Pub/Sub for chat or Sorted sets for ratings tracking simplify implementation of functionality that depends on user interactions fast-tracking application delivery.

Least complex:

Redis Enterprise is simple to deploy, manage, always available, and integrated into every type of environment, making it the most efficient choice for devops and IT teams.

Lowest costs:

Redis Enterprise delivers millions of writes/sec with sub-millisecond latency with a single modest server, using an order of magnitude lower resources than most other databases.

Redis Enterprise Flash delivers the same sub-millisecond latencies of RAM through tiered access to a combination of RAM and more cost-effective Flash memory for >80% cost savings, especially with large datasets.
