IBM® Power Systems™ offers high compute capacity, innovations such as CAPI-attached Flash, and price performance leadership. This combination makes it an ideal choice for enterprise-class Redis Labs deployments.
Today’s market demands increasingly faster processing and analysis of data. In-memory data structure stores like Redis Labs, which run 90 percent of next generation applications, are increasingly gaining prominence. As more processing and analytics operations shift to open source databases, organizations must choose the optimal hardware for such scenarios.
Reuven Lerner, Web developer, consultant, and longtime columnist for Linux Journal, offers his insight into how you can maximize your performance with Redis Labs and Power Systems in this free guide.
Lerner calls Redis, “the best possible combination of easy to use and very fast to execute.” Redis is known for both its performance and its reliability. IBM has partnered with Redis Labs, a private company that offers high-capacity Redis hosting and software, to create a special version of Redis.
Redis Labs on POWER dramatically cuts down the deployment cost of Redis, while maintaining an all-in-RAM sub-millisecond latency. IBM POWER8 servers are equipped with a higher number of virtual cores, allowing a higher number of Redis instances to be run per server compared to industry standard x86 servers.
Redis Enterprise on IBM POWER8 using a combination of RAM and IBM Flash, which is optimized for higher throughput than commodity Flash, delivers 200% higher throughput at up to 70% lower operational costs. By combining Redis with Power Systems you can drastically reduce your cost per transaction (70% Lower cost per transaction with Redis on POWER8.)
This new offering from IBM and Redis Labs promises to give large-scale Redis installations a smaller footprint, easier management and easier configuration. If you are currently managing a large Redis installation and worry about how you will continue to scale it up, this may be the answer.
