Do you offer Redis for Magento Hosting?

Yes, we use Redis for session caching.

Redis is an advanced key-value cache and store. It is often referred to as a data structure server, since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets, bitmaps and HyperLogLogs. Redis also supports trivial-to-setup master-slave asynchronous replication, with very fast non-blocking first synchronization, auto-reconnection with partial resynchronization on net split.

In order to achieve its outstanding performance, Redis works with an in-memory dataset. Depending on your use case, you can persist it either by dumping the dataset to disk every once in a while, or by appending each command to a log. Persistence can be optionally disabled, if you just need a feature-rich, networked, in-memory cache.

Other features of Redis include, Transactions, Pub/Sub, Lua scripting, Keys with a limited time-to-live, LRU eviction of keys and Automatic failover.
