http://db-engines.com/en/system/Redis%3BRiak gets the main point:
Redis is for "Applications that can hold all data in memory, and that
have high performance requirements."

I know we chose Riak with leveldb backend as we couldn't have all data
in memory.  Also Redis doesn't shard, so it won't scale to the size
that Riak will.  Also secondary indexes worked really well for us.

- Peace
