Top 10 Ways to Scale Your Website with Redis

Top 10 Ways to Scale Your Website with Redis

Redis has 10 different data structures (Strings, Hashes, Lists, Sets, Sorted Sets, Bit Arrays, Bit Fields, Hyperloglogs, Geospatial Indexes, Streams) plus PubSub and Redis Modules. In this talk, Dave will give 10 examples of how to use each data structure to scale your website. He will start with the basics, such as a SQL cache and User session management. Then he will demonstrate storing user generated tags, leaderboards and counting things with hyberloglog. He will end with a demo of Redis Streams which can be used to scale your Microservices-based architecture.
