Redis is key-value store. I'll use this post as an analogy.

If your post is the "key", my comment (and other peoples comments) would be it's value. Each of our comments only exist because you made the post in the first place. If you delete the post, you also delete our comments.

There's a lot more to it obviously, but that's the basics.
