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