Most of the NoSQL movement happened around the Map/Reduce type of storage, while Redis, mostly unknown, shines by it's simplicity. It is an in-memory database that (unlike Memcached) persists the data to disk to survive failures. It can help scale up write-heavy applications, but also serves as a great tool to understand how most databases work and learn to think in lower level storage terms.
