How to work with Redis Cache in .NET

Redis is an open source, fast, feature rich, in-memory caching engine that can be used to store and retrieve data in your applications

Caching is a state management strategy that can be used to improve the performance of your applications as it helps you to reduce the consumption of resources in your system.

Redis Cache is an open source, high-speed, NoSQL database. It’s fast, and it runs entirely in memory with negligible performance overhead when reading and writing data. It should be noted that Redis is free for both commercial and non-commercial use under the BSD license.

What is Redis Cache and why should I use it?

Redis is one of the most popular open source, NoSQL, in-memory based data stores available. It’s an in-memory data store that can support a wide variety of data structures, i.e., strings, hashes, sets, lists, etc. Redis also provides built-in support for replication and transactions, as well as excellent support for data persistence.

Redis is a good choice primarily if your application needs to store and retrieve a huge amount of data. If your application needs to store and retrieve lots of data and availability of free memory is not a constraint, Redis Cache is the caching engine you should go for. Setting up Redis is quite simple — the sections that follow discuss how to install, configure and use Redis.
