What to expect from KeyDB Open Source?

Low latency

By keeping data in-memory, KeyDB can serve up data with submillisecond latencies

A variety of data structures

A variety of data structures are supported such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, geospatial indexes, and streams


Add more throughput with replica nodes, active-replica nodes, or partition the data in a sharded cluster

High throughput

KeyDB is meant to handle high work loads with an architecture that maximizes use of your systems resources. A single node benchmarks over 1 million ops/sec

Basic persistence options

Periodically dump the dataset to disk or by appending each command to a disk-based log

High Availability

Simplify your high availability setup with active-replica nodes that do not require sentinel nodes for failover. HA setups are also available for sharded cluster mode configurations

KeyDB is a faster, drop in alternative to Redis

While fully compatible with Redis protocol, API,modules and clients, KeyDB is built on a multithreaded
engine that offers a powerful superset of functionality
