There are lots of apps that work with Redis. It works out-of-the-box with Express and many other modules. As Redis is such an essential resource for Node developers, we are now offering a Redis hosting option, free with every Cloudnode account. You can boot up a Redis instance in seconds. Being on the same local network and with its in-memory design, it is lightning fast especially on writes. With our new option you can choose the right database type depending on your use case:
CouchDB - If you need mobile support, multi-master synchronization, document versions
Redis - If you need many data updates, counters or session stores, master-slave synchronization
Just choose the desired type when you create a database using the web frontend. See our updated docs for details.
