Many people know Redis as a memcached replacement for in memory caching. The reality is that it is much much more, it can be used as a very sophisticated and robust in-memory NoSQL database, with persistent storage; giving you tremendous speeds and and scalability, not without reliability - all while keeping things simple.
The talk will include:
1. The basics of redis
2. Advanced usage - sets, sorted sets, hashes.
3. push/subscribe using redis.
4. scaling redis to a cluster.
5. example usages and benchmarks.
