Redis – The Hacker’s Database

This video presents Redis, a relatively new database with rich datatypes, lots of features and an amazing performance. The presentation will cover following things:
* What Redis is and how it compares to other databases such as BigTable or MySQL
* How Plurk is using Redis to store millions of timelines and do billions of operations on these timelines without much hardware
* How Redis can be used in a lot of creative ways, such as creating a high-performance graph database or a high-performance queue
* The distributed future of Redis (scaling Redis to thousands of machines)
