Redis on Windows – new version and NuGet Packages

Continuing our support for Redis on Windows, Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc. has just released the latest version (2.6.12). It has been tested and validated by our test team using the same process we used in the past to ensure stability and reliability.

We’ve also released Redis-32 and Redis-64 NuGet packages to make it easier to install for developers that don’t need access to the source code.

We are also working on adding support for the Web Platform Installer (WebPI) so stay tuned for more news soon!

    Thanks for your great work porting Redis to windows!

    This is so great. Is it going to be included in Azure, as an independend service or part of the partner offerings?

  3. @Tomas

    So far we have been busy to get Redis on Windows in a good shape :). For now what you can do is to use the Azure Installer included in the GitHub repo to easily deploy Redis (in various configurations).

    For an independent service and/or a partner offering: it is an interesting opportunity, we may look into that in the near future.

    It would be nice if you made the MSI installers available for download. Getting the MSI requires pulling the source, getting build dependencies, etc. It also doesn't work well if you want to install on a server that doesn't have Visual Studio installed. The NuGet packages are helpful but don't include service installers; the WA installer is nice for a cloud service but not a dedicated Redis server.

    We will publish MSIs as part of our WebPI release we are working on right now. We built MSIs so we can install Redis using WebPI so we will publish the MSIs so they can be used standalone as well.

    I would love if you could document how to setup both redis conf, watcher.conf and so on and provide recommendations.

  7. @Oliver

    Thanks for the suggestion. We will add some documentation in the github repo WIKI pages with some guidelines on how to use the config files.

    Great work!

    You mentioned back in July that you've already built MSIs and you'd be publishing them. Any update on that? Been waiting patiently. 🙂
