Redis module speeds Spark-powered machine learning

In-memory data store Redis recently acquired a module architecture to expand functionality. The latest module is a machine learning add-on that accelerates delivery of results from trained data rather than training itself.

Redis-ML, or the Redis Module for Machine Learning, comes courtesy of the commercial outfit that drives Redis development, Redis Labs. It speeds the execution of machine learning models while still allowing those models to be trained in familiar ways. Redis works as an in-memory cache backed by disk storage, and its creators claim machine learning models can be executed orders of magnitude more quickly with it.
