Understanding Redis

Redis is an inmemory data store

People misunderstand redis as only as plain key value store

⭐ But it is a data structure server supporting different kinds of values

Redis is used to handle

⭐ Blocked tokens in Authorization
⭐ RabbitMq Queues, chat, messaging etc.

Redis helps resolving complex concepts with simple commands

🔗 With rapidly changing data redis seems more adaptable than other popular databases like Mongo Db

🔗 But the only concern is the rapidly changing data should fit in memory

Feel free to add the benifits & points on redis 👇

It would be great to add more details. What complex concepts can Redis solve? What can we do with Redis that we can't with other kind of databases?
