    Top Five NoSQL Databases and When to Use Them-

    Redis

    Redis is one of the fastest datastores available today. An open source, in-memory and NoSQL database known for its speed and performance, Redis has become popular with developers and has a growing and vibrant community. It features several data types that make implementing various functionalities and flows extremely simple.

    To deliver top performance, Redis stores all data in RAM. Because Redis is king when it comes to speed and performance, the database is best used when time is an issue, including job management, queuing, real-time analytics, messaging, in-app social capabilities and geo search.

The days of the single source of truth, one database for the entire enterprise, are over. Now even a relatively simple mobile application demands more than one database. The good news is that we have entered a golden age of open-source NoSQL databases. Developers have great and readily available open-source technologies with robust communities behind them at their fingertips.

The difficulty is knowing which database is right for which use case. While a number of options are available, according to Redis Labs, these are five NoSQL databases that developers should be familiar with.

Redis Labs offers enterprise-class Redis and Memcached for developers. Their fully-managed cloud services - Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud - deliver top performance in a highly-available, infinitely scalable, predictable and stable manner — freeing developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, scaling, data-persistence and failure recovery.
