About Redis Stack

Redis Stack extends the core capabilities of Redis OSS and provides a complete developer experience for debugging and more.

Redis Stack is the best starting point for working with Redis. We’ve bundled together the best of the technology that we have to offer into an easy-to-use package.

In addition to all of the features of Redis OSS, Redis Stack supports:

Why Redis Stack?

Redis Stack was created to allow developers to build real-time applications with a backend data platform that can reliably process requests in milliseconds or less. Redis Stack does this by taking the original Redis OSS as the core and enhancing it with modern data models, data processing tools, and continuing to fight complexity at every turn. Ultimately, the goal of Redis Stack is to build a real-time data platform that continues to fulfill the philosophy of Redis OSS: simplicity, performance, and reliability.

Redis Stack unifies and simplifies the developer experience of Redis by offering all the cutting-edge capabilities provided by the leading Redis modules. Redis Stack bundles the following capabilities into Redis: RedisJSONRediSearchRedisTimeSeries, and RedisBloom.

The overarching vision is to provide developers with a powerful platform for all real-time data use cases. As we continue to advance the capabilities of Redis beyond caching, Redis Stack is the place to start. Redis Stack delivers the core capabilities developers love about Redis and goes beyond to help you build modern applications where performance is paramount.

Redis Insight

The best way to get started with Redis Stack is with Redis Insight, a visualization tool for understanding and optimizing Redis data.
