Salvatore Sanfilippo details the features planned for Redis’ near/mid-term future:
- Lua scripting support (Redis 2.6)
- High resolution expires (Redis 2.6)
- Performances improvements when reading/writing big objects (Redis 2.6)
- Redis cluster (Redis 3.0)
> Redis Cluster is a distributed implementation of a subset of Redis standalone. Not all commands will be supported, especially we don’t support things like multi-key operations. In general we are just implementing the subset of Redis that we are sure can be made working in a solid way in a cluster setup, with predictable behaviors.
> Redis cluster will stress consistency in favor of ability to resist to netsplits and failures in general.
- Replication improvements (Redis 3.0 or post 3.0)
- Persistence improvements (post Redis 3.0)
The post also mentions a very useful gem:
Redis with both AOF and RDB enabled is very durable already, and this is the setup we suggest
