Minio vs Redis: What are the differences?

Developers describe Minio as "AWS S3 open source alternative written in Go". Minio is an object storage server compatible with Amazon S3 and licensed under Apache 2.0 License. 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.

Minio belongs to "Cloud Storage" category of the tech stack, while Redis can be primarily classified under "In-Memory Databases".

Minio and Redis are both open source tools. Redis with 37.1K GitHub stars and 14.3K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Minio with 16.7K GitHub stars and 1.56K GitHub forks.

reddit, Instacart, and Slack are some of the popular companies that use Redis, whereas Minio is used by AgFlow, codebeat, and Minio. Redis has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3239 company stacks & 1732 developers stacks; compared to Minio, which is listed in 19 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.

    ceph
    In computing,It is a free-software storage platform, implements object storage on a single distributed computer cluster, and provides interfaces for object-, block- and file-level storage.
    FreeNAS
    It is the simplest way to create a centralized and easily accessible place for your data. Use it with ZFS to protect, store, backup, all of your data. It is used everywhere, for the home, small business, and the enterprise.
    Amazon S3
    Amazon Simple Storage Service provides a fully redundant data storage infrastructure for storing and retrieving any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web
    Google Cloud Storage
    Google Cloud Storage allows world-wide storing and retrieval of any amount of data and at any time. It provides a simple programming interface which enables developers to take advantage of Google's own reliable and fast networking infrastructure to perform data operations in a secure and cost effective manner. If expansion needs arise, developers can benefit from the scalability provided by Google's infrastructure.
    Amazon EBS
    Amazon EBS volumes are network-attached, and persist independently from the life of an instance. Amazon EBS provides highly available, highly reliable, predictable storage volumes that can be attached to a running Amazon EC2 instance and exposed as a device within the instance. Amazon EBS is particularly suited for applications that require a database, file system, or access to raw block level storage.

    I use Redis because, based on the case studies I have reviewed, it appears to be the most performant cache database for my Django projects. The ease of configuration and deployment is also a big plus.

    Using both higher level view caching as well as low-level QuerySet caching with Redis has allowed me to improve HTTP request times by an order of magnitude.

    Reviews of Minio and Redis
    Review ofRedisRedis

    Redis is a good caching tool for a cluster, but our application had performance issues while using Aws Elasticache Redis since some page had 3000 cache hits per a page load and Redis just couldn't quickly process them all in once + latency and object deseialization time - page load took 8-9 seconds. We create a custom hybrid caching based on Redis and EhCache which worked great for our goals. Check it out on github, it's called HybriCache - https://github.com/batir-akhmerov/hybricache.

    Cloudcraft uses RedisRedis

    Redis is used for storing all ephemeral (that's data you don't necessarily want to store permanently) user data, such as mapping of session IDs (stored in cookies) to current session variables at Cloudcraft.co. The many datastructures supported by Redis also makes it an excellent caching and realtime statistics layer. It doesn't hurt that the author, Antirez, is the nicest guy ever! These days, I would be really hard pressed to find any situation where I would pick something like Memcached over Redis.

    Trello uses RedisRedis

    Trello uses Redis for ephemeral data that needs to be shared between server processes but not persisted to disk. Things like the activity level of a session or a temporary OpenID key are stored in Redis, and the application is built to recover gracefully if any of these (or all of them) are lost. We run with allkeys-lru enabled and about five times as much space as its actual working set needs, so Redis automatically discards data that hasn鈥檛 been accessed lately, and reconstructs it when necessary.

    The UI has message inbox that is sent a message when you get a new badge, receive a message, significant event, etc. Done using WebSockets and is powered by redis. Redis has 2 slaves, SQL has 2 replicas, tag engine has 3 nodes, elastic has 3 nodes - any other service has high availability as well (and exists in both data centers).

    Redis makes certain operations very easy. When I need a high-availability store, I typically look elsewhere, but for rapid development with the ability to land on your feet in prod, Redis is great. The available data types make it easy to build non-trivial indexes that would require complex queries in postgres.

    I use Redis for cacheing, data storage, mining and augmentation, proprietary distributed event system for disparate apps and services to talk to each other, and more. Redis has some very useful native data types for tracking, slicing and dicing information.
