Redis (Remote Dictionary Server) is an in-memory data structure project implementing a distributed, in-memory key-value database with optional durability. Redis supports different kinds of abstract data structures, such as strings, lists, maps, sets, sorted sets, HyperLogLogs, bitmaps, streams, and spatial indexes. The project is mainly developed by Salvatore Sanfilippo and as of 2019, is sponsored by Redis Labs. It is open-source software released under a BSD 3-clause license.

Lately we’ve been looking into Redis as a high performing store for last viewed items. In this blog I’ll look show how to create a POC with the redis-cli and then implement it using .NET Core. We’ll be using the sorted set structure.
