i love redis as much as anyone, but can we stop building systems that try their hardest to use every single redis feature in tandem? it’s a really good hash map implementation with some quality of life features thrown in.

mongo had another rough analysis from jepsen that’s making the rounds, and it deserves the scrutiny it is getting, but i have to say i respect wiredtiger’s support for b-trees and lsm-trees. it’s a neat feature i wish more databases could say they support with so little fuss.
