I was using the dictionary function in Python to manage my database, which turned out a disaster. Well, I shouldn’t have tried it in the first place. It was painfully slow if more than 10,000 data entries. Redis, on the other hand is an in-memory database and gains flame quite dramatically and quickly among tech followers. So I gave it a try. Here is the time consume on my Mac.
RedisPerformanceThe x-axis is the number of data entries. The y-axis is time consumed by redis+python to store those data entries, its unit is second.

For the record, I indeed managed using dictionary() to store about 10,000 data entries. But after waited so long, I decided to abandon it entirely. It is safe to say it is out of this chart.
