Gearman vs Redis: What are the differences?
Developers describe Gearman as "A generic application framework to farm out work to other machines or processes". Gearman allows you to do work in parallel, to load balance processing, and to call functions between languages. It can be used in a variety of applications, from high-availability web sites to the transport of database replication events. On the other hand, Redis is detailed as "An in-memory database that persists on disk". Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
Gearman and Redis are primarily classified as "Message Queue" and "In-Memory Databases" tools respectively.
"Free" is the primary reason why developers consider Gearman over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis.
Redis is an open source tool with 37.4K GitHub stars and 14.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Redis's open source repository on GitHub.
Airbnb, Uber Technologies, and Instagram are some of the popular companies that use Redis, whereas Gearman is used by Instagram, Hootsuite, and Grooveshark. Redis has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3261 company stacks & 1781 developers stacks; compared to Gearman, which is listed in 19 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
