Daniela Miao, CTO and Co-founder at Momento, joins Chris Price, lead of the developer ecosystem team, to discuss the Redis compatibility clients that Momento has introduced. Chris starts by explaining how the Redis compatibility clients are designed to help users transition smoothly from using Redis to Momento, by dropping in a Redis compatible client library in a language of your choice. 

The motivation behind Momento’s compatibility clients is to address the challenges developers face when considering migrating from Redis to Momento. Since many developers have already implemented code using Redis APIs, it can be daunting to rewrite or adapt their code for a new service. Momento’s solution allows developers to continue using their familiar Redis APIs while connecting to Momento’s serverless cache

Chris showcases an example he created to run through the process of transitioning an application’s Redis usage to Momento. He demos an existing a Node.js application that interacts with Redis, and then he guides the viewers through the steps required to switch to Momento using a compatibility client. 

At the end of the conversation, Chris runs through the language support available, including Node.js.NETC#Go, and Python. The Momento team encourages users to provide feedback on which languages are most crucial to their development needs, so we can prioritize future compatibility clients.
