We are now, simply, Redis
Twitch, the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers, brings over 100 million community members together with up to 2+ million concurrent visitors watching and talking about video games from 1.7 million + broadcasters. The top notch engineering team that handles Twitch’s web application has architected their website for extremely fast response times as well as high availability and reliability.
As an engineering team focused on high scale and high volume, Twitch wanted to spend minimal time on operations but really required high availability and reliability for their Redis layer. Redis eliminated the need for Twitch to build operational expertise around managing the nuances of running Redis in production.
