Using PostgreSQL with Redis

Using native wrappers and a Foreign Data Wrapper for two-way Redis integration

Redis is a high performance in-memory distributed data store, which can work well in conjunction with PostgreSQL in certain types of applications.

The talk will introduce native wrappers for the Redis API, which allow pushing data into Redis at high speed, as well as use of both the native API and the Redis Foreign Data Wrapper to pull data from Redis. We will also discuss possible scenarios where use of each of these is a win, and the trade-offs involved.
