Description of Session

Redis is a high performance key-value store used by countless companies and sites. 2014 sees the release of the new "cluster" features, which bring true scale-out capability into the already excellent product.

This session takes a look at the motivations and advantages of redis cluster, shows you how to create a cluster of redis nodes, and demonstrates how to talk to a redis cluster whether from the comand-line, or from applications via libraries.

Code examples will be using C#, but libraries are available for most technology stacks.
