Cannot end the week without mentioning ☞ REDIS TO GO, a Heroku add-on for hosted Redis:
With every project I have done using Redis, I’ve been aggravated when adding a new server to manage. Setting up a server can be daunting, and adds one more part to juggle. My time was not spent on the projects themselves, but felt tediously wasted on managing the system. What happens if the server goes down? How do I make sure Redis is up and running? Where do I backup my data and how do I do it?
Worth pointing out though that people on ☞ Hacker News don’t agree much with the above, not to mention they are finding the 4 packages quite expensive.
