Redis was created in 2009 by Salvatore Sanfilippo, who still remains a lead developer of the project. Redis is sometimes described as “Memcached on steroids,” which is hardly surprising considering that parts of Redis were built in response to lessons learned from using Memcached. Redis has more features than Memcached and is,more powerful and flexible.

How to configure Redis

Create a blank Symfony project:

# run this if you are building a traditional web application
composer create-project symfony/website-skeleton my_project_name

# building a microservice, console application or API
composer create-project symfony/skeleton my_project_name
composer require symfony-bundles/redis-bundle
