Running out of memory? Learn how Redis Enterprise enables large dataset analysis with the highest throughput and lowest latency while reducing costs over 75%! 

Golang/Go and Redis have a lot in common. Go is fast and simple. It's a great tool for prototyping things and has the added benefit of really fast execution with little memory. Similarly, Redis is simple, persistent, and benchmarked as the fastest in-memory database. Developers are always looking to improve performance but often must increase complexity to achieve it. This is not the case with Redis and Go, and that's why both are quickly becoming the most popular open-source languages and databases respectively. Redis was named the most loved database by developers for 2017 and Go was named one of the top five most loved programming languages by developers. Though they perform different tasks, their value proposition is the same: improved performance without sacrificing simplicity.
