RedisConf will take place at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco from May 30 to June 1, 2017. The event is expected to attract more than a thousand attendees comprised of Redis experts, contributors, users and beginners. The conference, in its third year running, is supported by Amazon Web Services, Google, IBM, Intel, Mesosphere, Pivotal and Zettaset.

"The ubiquity of Redis' adoption is highlighted by the breadth of speaker and sponsor participation," said Manish Gupta, CMO of Redis Labs. "RedisConf 2017 is going to be a memorable event for beginner and expert users of Redis alike. The day zero hands-on training and in-depth content across four tracks will enhance understanding of Redis by application developers and operations personnel regardless of domains or industries."

"With Redis' new capabilities in graph data and full text search, it's poised to advance from application-level caching use cases to true enterprise systems-of-record," said Joshua McKenty, ‎Vice President, Global Ecosystem Engineering at Pivotal. "Coupled with a maturing integration with Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and more developer adoption than any other open source data service, should we be worried about emerging AI and the overthrow of the human race? To put it bluntly... is Redis turning into SkyNet?"

"IBM made a visionary choice of integrating Redis Enterprise with IBM Power Systems, the platform for real-time transactional and analytic workloads," said Terri Virnig, Vice President, Ecosystem and Strategy, Power Systems at IBM. "We are an enthusiastic sponsor of RedisConf 2017, as it showcases the power of the Redis community."

"Mesosphere runs on any datacenter or cloud, without fear of lock-in," said Peter Guagenti, CMO of Mesosphere. "We are excited to support RedisConf 2017, and talk about how DC/OS and Redis Enterprise meet real-time data and application needs with simplicity and automation."

"Intel Optane is a revolutionary approach to flash memory technology and Redis perfectly showcases the leap forward it represents in terms of the new economics of in-memory computing," said Frank Ober, Data Center Solution Architect of Intel. "We look forward to unveiling the potential of Redis Enterprise combined with Intel Optane at RedisConf 2017."
