Redis seems to be more and more associated with the cloud:
- firstly, it was Redis and VMWare
- then, Redis and Heroku
- and now Redis and ☞ OpenStack, the open source cloud computing software from Rackspace.
Soren Hansen (Rackspace) ☞ mentions Redis:
OpenStack (so far, at least) has two main components to it: A “compute” compenent called “Nova” and a “storage” component called “Swift”.
Nova is written in Python and uses Twisted.
Nova currently uses Redis for its key-value store. Nova can use either LDAP or its key-value store for its user database.
