StackOverflow Preparing to Use Redis

According to Jeff Atwood (@codinghorror):

we are tooling up to begin using redis on stackoverflow for shared memory caching

Sounds like more and more projects are realizing the benefits of using Redis and that Memcached and Membase do have a strong competitor.

While it looks like Redis is currently focusing on optimizing memory consumption, I’d say that the next most important feature should be making Redis truly distributed (nb currently it only support master/slave replication and client side hashing).

Update: the confirmation came today from Kevin Montrose (@ kevinmontrose ):

We’re field testing #redis on Meta.SO. #stackoverflow
