rsedis is a re-implementation of Redis, the popular in-memory data structure store, using the Rust programming language. The primary motivation behind this project is to learn Rust while offering a multi-threaded, cross-platform alternative to Redis.

Why rsedis?

The main goal of rsedis is educational - to learn and experiment with the Rust programming language. However, it also presents several practical benefits:

  • Cross-Platform: Unlike the original Redis, rsedis does not rely on UNIX-specific features, making it suitable for Windows users as a Redis replacement.
  • Multi-Threaded: rsedis utilizes multiple threads, potentially offering better performance on machines with multiple cores.

Key Features

  • In-Memory Data Store: Similar to Redis, rsedis provides an in-memory key-value store with data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, and sorted sets.
  • Multi-Threading: Leveraging Rust's concurrency features, rsedis can utilize multiple CPU cores for improved performance.
  • Cross-Platform Compatibility: rsedis can run on various operating systems, including Windows, due to its lack of dependence on UNIX-specific features.


To run rsedis, you need to have Rust nightly installed. This ensures compatibility with the latest Rust features used in the project.

Current Status

rsedis is an ongoing project, and its development status can be tracked in the file. The project is actively evolving, with new features and improvements being added regularly.

Use Cases

While the primary aim of rsedis is to serve as an educational tool for learning Rust, it can also be used in practical scenarios:

  • Windows Users: As a cross-platform alternative to Redis, rsedis can be utilized by Windows users who need a reliable in-memory data store.
  • Multi-Core Systems: The multi-threading capabilities of rsedis make it suitable for deployment on systems with multiple CPU cores, potentially offering performance benefits over single-threaded Redis instances.
