Today, the Linux Foundation announced its intent to form Valkey, an open source alternative to the Redis in-memory, NoSQL data store. Project contributors quickly gathered maintainer, community, and corporate support to regroup in response to the recent license change announced by Redis Inc. Valkey will continue development on Redis 7.2.4 and will keep the project available for use and distribution under the open source Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) 3-clause license. Since the Redis project was founded in 2009, thousands of open source developers have contributed significantly to its growth and success. Many more developers use it for caching, as well as a lower latency, higher throughput data store alternative to their backend database, for real-time data analysis, session store, message broker, and many other use cases. Developers ranked Redis the sixth most used database in the 2023 Stack Overflow developer survey, and it was among the top three most admired. To continue improving on this important technology and allow for unfettered distribution of the project, the community created Valkey, an open source high performance key-value store. Valkey supports the Linux, macOS, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and FreeBSD platforms. In addition, the community will continue working on its existing roadmap including new features such as a more reliable slot migration, dramatic scalability and stability improvements to the clustering system, multi-threaded performance improvements, triggers, new commands, vector search support, and more.
