Download "Why Your MySQL Needs Redis" and discover how to extend your current MySQL or relational database to a Redis database.

Justin Mares has composed a nice list of some of the major tech players that use Redis in their application architecture.  You should read the blog to read some brief descriptions of how each company uses Redis, but here are just the companies he lists:

  • Instagram
  • GitHub
  • Stack Overflow
  • Pinterest
  • Twitter
  • Tumblr
  • Twilio
  • Craigslist

Read "Developing Apps Using Active-Active Redis Enterprise" and discover the advantages over other active-actve databases.
