Redis vs twemproxy: What are the differences?
Developers describe Redis 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. On the other hand, twemproxy is detailed as "A fast, light-weight proxy for memcached and redis, by Twitter". twemproxy (pronounced "two-em-proxy"), aka nutcracker is a fast and lightweight proxy for memcached and redis protocol. It was built primarily to reduce the number of connections to the caching servers on the backend. This, together with protocol pipelining and sharding enables you to horizontally scale your distributed caching architecture.
Redis belongs to "In-Memory Databases" category of the tech stack, while twemproxy can be primarily classified under "Memcached Tools".
Redis and twemproxy are both open source tools. It seems that Redis with 37.4K GitHub stars and 14.4K forks on GitHub has more adoption than twemproxy with 9.14K GitHub stars and 1.67K GitHub forks.
