We have ended up using Redis for a host of other smaller things as we continue to grow. Although this wasn’t an explicit decision, Redis provides enough basic data types and functionality to get most problems done and you’d be hard pressed to find something that can do it faster.
I knew Bump is using Redis, but it is only now that I’ve discovered their post describing what they use Redis for:
- log aggregation
- basic social graph
- asset caching
