Redis Establishes a New Industry Benchmark with One Billion Downloads on Docker

Cited as the world’s fastest and most-loved database, Redis is the only database to reach this major adoption milestone

Mountain View, September 25, 2018—Redis, the home of Redis and provider of Redis Enterprise, today announced that Redis has been launched more than one billion times on Docker Hub. Redis is the first database platform ever to reach this milestone.

“Meeting this milestone is a true testament to the popularity and adoption of Redis by the developer community globally,” said Ofer Bengal, CEO of Redis. “Redis is launched an average of four million times per day–a strong indication that businesses are no longer tolerating latency, and are turning to a trusted database to speed application responsiveness. It’s exciting to see Redis surpass all other databases, and we thank the Redis community for their continued support and innovation.”

Redis is the world’s fastest in-memory NoSQL database platform. Redis powers cutting-edge applications and is known to enhance use cases such as real-time analytics, fast high-volume transactions, in-app social functionality, application job management, queuing and caching. Redis has been named the most-loved database in Stack Overflow’s Developer Survey for the past two years.

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship and run distributed applications on containers, whether on laptops, data center VMs or the cloud. Docker containers are a key enabling technology for microservices, providing a lightweight encapsulation of each component so that it is easier to maintain and update independently.
