Redis Labs is the ‘open source home’ and official sponsor of Redis, a leading in-memory, multi-model database platform. It is also the commercial provider of Redis Enterprise, an enhanced (and proprietary) version of Redis that provides additional functionality (primarily scale-out cluster support and high availability) designed to make it better suited for the enterprise. This is available both on-premises and in the cloud (Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Heroku and others) and can be deployed as a fully managed service. Redis itself is often rated as one of – if not the – most popular NoSQL databases, with more than 7,100 paying customers.
The company also extends the native characteristics of Redis and Redis Enterprise to many popular industry use cases implemented through modules that the company has developed. By “module” the company means functionality embedded into the product as opposed to something tacked on top.
Redis Labs is a privately-held company backed by venture capital, as of February 2019 raising $146 million in financing. It was founded in 2011 and is based in Mountain View, California. It has additional offices in London and Tel Aviv.
