  • Uses leveldb to store lots of data, over the memory limit.
  • Supports expiration and ttl.
  • Redis clients, like redis-cli, are supported directly.
  • Multi client API supports, including Golang, Python, Lua(Openresty).
  • Easy to embed in Golang application.
  • Replication to guarantee data safe.
  • Supplies tools to load, dump, repair database.

It looks like a pretty interesting project for Redis users or Golang believers. Check out the full site for all the details.
