Redis 3.0 is still in beta. Some documentation may be missing or out of date.
Redis is a Redis client library that can communicate with a Redis database.
What is Redis?¶
Redis is an in-memory data store used as a database, cache and message broker. It supports most common data structures. Redis is most commonly used for caching data such as sessions and notifications (between multiple servers).
Redis works as a key-value store, but allows querying the keys, unlike most databases.
