What is Redis?

Redis is a caching technology which places database data and other data that would normally be retrieved via disks in the fast RAM memory. This RAM memory is even faster than the NVME SSD's that Neostrada uses in the servers, so it can give your website a decent performance boost.

Note: Not all CMS's or code bases benefit directly from Redis caching. For example, if your website uses ever-changing data, database requests will have to be made, which can make your website slower. If your website does not benefit from Redis caching, contact [email protected], you can cancel the order within 30 days free of charge.
