IRedis vs Flyway: What are the differences?
IRedis: A Terminal Client for Redis with AutoCompletion and Syntax Highlighting. It is a terminal client for redis with auto-completion and syntax highlighting. It lets you type Redis commands smoothly, and displays results in a user-friendly format It is an alternative for redis-cli. In most cases, it behaves exactly the same as redis-cli. Besides, it is safer to use it on production servers than redis-cli: It will prevent accidentally running dangerous commands.; Flyway: Version control for your database. It lets you regain control of your database migrations with pleasure and plain sql. Solves only one problem and solves it well. It migrates your database, so you don't have to worry about it anymore.
IRedis and Flyway can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.
Some of the features offered by IRedis are:
- Advanced code completion
- Command validation
- Command highlighting, fully based on redis grammar
On the other hand, Flyway provides the following key features:
- Supported databases: Oracle, SQL Server, SQL Azure, DB2, DB2 z/OS, MySQL, MariaDB, Google Cloud SQL, PostgreSQL, Redshift, Vertica, H2, Hsql, Derby, SQLite

Flyway vs Liquibase #Migration #Backwards-compatible
We were looking for a tool to help us integrating the migration scripts as part of our Deployment. At first sight both tools look very alike, are well integrated with Spring, have a fairly frequent development activity and short release cycles.
Liquibase puts a lot of emphasis on independence with the DB, allowing you to create the scripts on formats like JSON and YML, abstracting away from SQL, which it's also supported. Since we only work with one DB type across services we wouldn't take much advantage of this feature.
Flyway on the other hand has the advantage on being actively working on the integration with PostgreSQL 11, for it's upcoming version 6. Provides a more extensive set of properties that allow us to define what's allowed on what's not on each different environment.
Instead of looking for a tool that will allow us to rollback our DB changes automatically, we decided to implement backwards-compatible DB changes, for example adding a new column instead of renaming an existing one, postponing the deletion of the deprecated column until the release has been successfully installed.
it works with complex SQL script and it is very high customizable.
