Earlier this year, we published a story on one of our Pivotal People, Salvatore Sanfillipo, the inventor of Redis. First released in 2009, Redis is a popular open source in-memory data cache, with over a million users worldwide. It is used to speed up data in many of the most popular web applications that deal with huge data volumes, including Twitter, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
Savvy readers noticed Pivotal was becoming a hot bed for Redis knowledge and development, and today we are happy to extend that competency out to commercial support offerings. As of today, Pivotal will be offering 2 types of services for companies that have grown to depend on Redis and would like commercial support.
To request support, contact Pivotal via our website or email us at email@example.com.
In addition, after nearly a year of development, and weeks without a serious bug being reported for the public beta, Redis 2.8.0 has been released as stable code.
With nearly 1000 commits to the now stable branch, many things are improved in the latest version, including:
Redis Sentinel, the management system dedicated to Redis, was rewritten from scratch to be more reliable. The new version is available to work with Redis 2.8.0, however it must be downloaded from the unstable branch.
For companies with Redis installed, it is recommended that you consider the list of features and improvements for Redis 2.8.0 and establish a plan to upgrade when it fits the needs of the business. While upgrades are encouraged, previous versions are stable and can continue to support your projects. However, given the degree of revisions and improvements for Sentinel, it is recommended that users upgrade Sentinel to the new version as soon as possible.
