Redis Labs Wins THINKstrategies’ Cloud Computing Business Value Award

THINKstrategies, Inc. announced today that Redis Labs has been named winner of the Cloud Computing Business Value (CCBV) Award. This program promotes the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions.

The CCBV Awards is an ongoing program administered by THINKstrategies’ Cloud Computing Showplace to recognize Cloud companies that are delivering measurable business benefits to specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.

Redis Labs is the open source home and commercial provider of Redis, a database benchmarked as the world’s fastest. Redis Labs’ software and service solutions power cutting edge applications with blazing fast enterprise-class Redis and are trusted by thousands of customers for high performance, seamless scalability, true high availability and best-in-class expertise. These solutions enhance popular Redis use cases such as real-time analytics, fast high-volume transactions, in-app social functionality, application job management, queuing and caching.

An example of the Redis Labs customer that has gained measurable business benefits from the Redis Cloud is Bleacher Report which uses Redis Cloud as the high performance caching system for its business. Through the Redis Labs platform, they are able to engineer the data layer to scale up automatically, seamlessly and without any downtime. The Redis database automatically starts to cluster across multiple shards as it grows in capacity. With the standard open source Redis server, Bleacher Report saw intermittent spikes in the response times up to 700 milliseconds (ms) and averaged 435ms. Redis Cloud has brought average response times of their API layer down by 87% to a consistent and smooth average of 55ms.

Based on these measurable benefits, Redis Labs has been named a Cloud Computing Business Value (CCBV) Award winner.

“Redis Labs is pleased to be recognized by THINKstrategies and the Cloud Computing Showplace for helping our customers achieve tremendous business value,” said Leena Joshi, VP Product Marketing at Redis Labs. “Redis Cloud is the gold standard of what a cloud service should be. With its world-class built-in high availability and seamless scalability, it relieves Redis users of all operational effort involved with deploying, configuring or managing Redis.”

“An increasing number of organizations are attempting to capitalize on Open Source solutions to achieve their corporate objectives,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Cloud Computing Showplace. “Redis Cloud is enabling organizations to leverage Redis Labs’ tremendous expertise to optimize the performance of their open source database.”
