Redis is an open source, high performance networked key value store that provides a rich set of features while staying simple and fast.

This talk introduces data types and operations available in Redis, and how it can be used alongside PostgreSQL to design high performance, write heavy applications that stay up.

Discussion will be based on our own experience handling a sustained 100 thousand writes a minute, and our use of Redis for caching, indexing, throttling and beyond.
