Microsoft Uses Redis Enterprise to Handle Traffic Spikes

Microsoft’s web portal contains a collection of Internet services and apps for Windows and mobile devices that serve billions of clients. MSN needed their applications to constantly run at a smooth and efficient pace, especially during traffic spikes. Their current databases were running at high latency with slow response times and could only handle limited volume and low throughput.

To manage days where traffic reached up to 2 billion requests like on election night, MSN relies on Redis Enterprise for stable and scalable performance without having to worry about lag in response time.


“Redis reduced our application latencies to under 10 ms, with the least operational overhead on our team.”
