When the value size of a Redis key exceeds 100 Kilo-Bytes it will apply gzip compression algorithm to decrease the size and automatically upon retrieval it will decompress it so the whole process is transparent from the client's perspective. The compression will decrease the size of the data packets through the network therefore the performances of the redis call will increase by 50%.

  • Key deletion with regex
