Redis Raises the Standard for Harnessing Real-Time Data with Redis 7.2

Redis, Inc. is introducing the unified release of Redis 7.2 across the company's complete portfolio, including open source, source-available, commercial cloud, software, and Kubernetes distributions.

Redis Enterprise 7.2 cloud and software products preview a scalable search feature which delivers greater performance for query and search use cases, including vector similarity search (VSS).

According to the company, Redis 7.2 raises the bar for ease-of-use across the board from new core Redis capabilities to tooling while ensuring that the clients, integrations, and documentation deliver a seamless, unified experience.

Additionally, with the growing challenges of building generative AI applications, Redis Enterprise has been enhanced to store vector embeddings while providing a high-performance index and query search engine.

Any Redis practitioner can now build better, faster, and more confidently, taking advantage of features including:

  • Scalable search, previewed in this release, enables a higher query throughput, including VSS and full-text search exclusively as part of the company’s commercial offerings. Redis Enterprise now achieves superior search performance by blending sharding for seamless data expansion with efficient vertical scaling.
  • Working directly with the community maintainers of the five most popular client libraries—Jedis (Java), node-redis (NodeJS), redis-py (Python), NRedisStack (.Net), and Go-Redis (Go)—Redis is driving consistency in the experience, documentation, governance, performance, and security across those libraries. Additionally, the latest version of the Redis Serialization Protocol (RESP3) is now supported across source-available, Redis Enterprise cloud and software products for the first time.
  • Developers can now program, store, and execute Triggers and Functions within Redis using Javascript. Previewed on Redis Enterprise Cloud in select regions, Triggers and Functions empower developers to build and maintain real-time applications by moving business logic closer to the data without leaving Redis, ensuring lower latency.
  • Auto Tiering (previously Redis on Flash) helps developers and operators cost-effectively manage large datasets with increasing volume. With Auto Tiering, operators can keep heavily used data in memory and move less frequently needed data to SSD.
  • Redis Enterprise Software customers also have a new cluster management user interface (UI) inspired by the company's cloud UI. This consistency allows operators to access the information they need on a database with a few clicks, which will reduce learning curves, improve resolution times, and minimize errors, according to the company.
  • Redis Data Integration (RDI) transforms any dataset into real-time accessibility by seamlessly and incrementally bringing data from multiple sources to Redis. Through RDI, now in public preview, Redis Enterprise Software customers can integrate with popular data sources such as Oracle Database, Postgres, MySQL, and Cassandra, enabling greater performance and cost savings.

"Redis 7.2 is an exciting release because we've wrapped our arms around the end-to-end Redis experience and made it a top priority to ensure the tooling, integrations, and control users require to match the seamless ease-of-use that anyone who loves Redis expects," said Rowan Trollope, CEO at Redis. "Redis has also been an early mover in the emergence of vector database technology. Scalable search further optimizes the processing of low-latency vector workloads with a robust and performant search engine to make it easy for developers to build generative AI applications."
