There are some interesting choices there. I was bound to experiment with ArangoDB, but this never happened after all. However, I'm most curious about using Redis for authentication. Could you elaborate a bit on that choice?

Hi Pawel
Thanks for you comment.
Yeah, I really like to work with ArangoDB. Until now i don't use the multi-model/graph features of it but have some use-cases in mind which bring me to choose this DB.
Redis I use mainly to handle Refresh Tokens and Token Blacklist.

Oh, I get it now. I thought that for some reason you keep user profiles outside of Arango and I wanted to know why. But yeah, keeping tokens in Redis makes sense to me.
