Healthstream and Redis Labs Discuss Accelerating Application Responsiveness Cost Effectively at IBM Interconnect 2016

Mountain View, February 18, 2016—Redis, the home of Redis, and HealthStream, a leading provider of workforce, patient experience and provider solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that they will be presenting at IBM InterConnect 2016, the premier cloud and mobile conference, on Feb. 21-25, at the MGM Grand & Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Brent Holliman, Director of Product Architecture at HealthStream, will share how Redis accelerated application response times for its learning management system application. Redis’ VP Product Marketing, Leena Joshi, will discuss how such high performance and low latencies can be achieved for any application, at over 70% lower costs using Redis Enterprise Cluster (RLEC) on Flash with IBM Power 8 and CAPI Flash. Redis was an ideal solution for HealthStream’s extremely high throughput requirements due to its stable high performance, true high availability as well as seamless scaling capabilities.

Redis’ developer advocate, Dave Nielsen, will deliver tech talks and product demonstrations of Redis use cases and Redis high availability with RLEC at its booth #814.

Additionally, Jason Forget, chief revenue officer of Redis, will speak on a panel titled, “Open Power Innovation: Hear directly from Foundation Members and clients” on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016 at 1:15pm at Mandalay Bay South in the Lagoon Room. The OpenPOWER Foundation was founded in 2013 as an open technical membership organization that will enable data centers to rethink their approach to technology. Redis has been a member of this organization since 2015 delivering innovative NoSQL solutions for the POWER 8 platform.

The breakout session titled, “How to Scale Your App to Handle Millions of Requests Per Second Without Breaking the Bank,” featuring Brent Holliman, the Director of Product Architecture at HealthStream, and Leena Joshi, the VP of Product Marketing at Redis, will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 10am in Ballroom C.

Redis, a Gold Plus sponsor of IBM InterConnect, will exhibit its solutions and enterprise offerings at booth #814. For more information, visit:
