Getting Started with Redis Stack

redis stack

Redis Stack is an extension of Redis that adds modern data models and processing engines to provide a complete developer experience. Redis Stack provides a simple and seamless way to access different data models such as full-text search, document store, graph, time series, and probabilistic data structures enabling developers to build any real-time data application.

Redis OSS vs. Redis Stack

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

  • Queryable JSON documents
  • Full-text search
  • Time series data (ingestion & querying)
  • Graph data models with the Cypher query language
  • Probabilistic data structures

Redis Stack is made up of several components, licensed as follows:

  • Redis Stack Server combines open source Redis with RediSearch, RedisJSON RedisGraph, RedisTimeSeries and RedisBloom is licensed under the Redis Source Available License (RSAL).
  • RedisInsight is licensed under the Server Side Public License (SSPL).
