Shades of Redis

Good piece from Charles Leifer highlighting a couple of alternative takes on the redis key/datastructure store:

Recently I’ve learned about a few new Redis-like databases: Rlite, Vedis and LedisDB. Each of these projects offers a slightly different take on the data-structure server you find in Redis, so I thought that I’d take some time and see how they worked. In this post I’ll share what I’ve learned, and also show you how to use these databases with Walrus, as I’ve added support for them in the latest 0.3.0 release.

I’m particularly intrigued by the embedded Rlite store. Seems like something useful for situations slightly less relational than what SQLite can service.
