RediSearch - Redis Secondary Index & Query Engine

Forum Discord

RediSearch is a source available Secondary Index, Query Engine and Full-Text Search over Redis, developed by Redis .

Supported Platforms

RediSearch is developed and tested on Linux and Mac OS, on x86_64 CPUs.

i386 CPUs should work fine for small data-sets, but are not tested and not recommended. Atom CPUs are not supported currently.


Redisearch implements a secondary index on top of Redis, but unlike other Redis indexing libraries, it does not use internal data structures such as sorted sets.

This also enables more advanced features, such as multi-field queries, aggregation, and full text search capabilites. These capabilities include exact phrase matching and numeric filtering for text queries, something that is neither possible or efficient with traditional Redis indexing approaches.

Client Libraries

Official and community client libraries in Python, Java, JavaScript, Ruby, Go, C#, and PHP.

See the Clients page for the full list.

Cluster Support

RediSearch has a distributed cluster version that scales to billions of documents, and hundreds of servers. We also offer official commercial support for RediSearch. See the Redis Website for more info and contact information.

Primary Features
