Does anyone here have experience with using Redis and Meteor, presumably through Slava’s packages?
Any general thoughts and discussion about how and when are appreciated.
I’m putting together a real-time services marketplace and am considering using Redis (a first for me) to handle the many details like member logins & logouts, availability and real-time status, time to order fulfillment, and such. Perhaps even geolocation.
Currently thinking of these data points as a loose equivalent of app-wide
Reasons for: performance and cost.
Reasons against: complexity and any chance of lost data.
Advice? Cautionary tales? Best practices? How have you used Redis with Meteor, and how did it go?
Did you host it yourself?
Is there any reason why I should or shouldn’t use Redis for things like instant messages/chat?
