Redis on Windows


Redis on Windows is a software program developed by MSOpenTech. The most common release is 3.2.100, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 9 files and is usually about 6.28 MB (6,586,368 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 82% of users of Redis on Windows come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates.
