Level:  Case Study

In this 30 min session you will learn how Bleacher Report used Redis Labs to build a highly scalable, highly available, and top performing application with sub 60ms response times. Redis is an open source in memory NoSQL database best known for its sub-millisecond latency.

In this session you will learn:

  • Why we needed to build the API app.
  • Why Bleacher report relies on Redis as a critical infrastructure component.
  • How to leverage Redis operations and methods.
  • Issues, and lessons learned in building the B/R API service with Redis.
  • What we found out about Redis Cloud by Redis Labs vs open-source Redis performance.
