I want to use redis to share and store my php sessions. I've tested Phalcon Redis implementation and it works fine. Now, I'm not sure what the benefits really are: I can setup Redis as my session handler at the php level (php.ini) it would be easier and transparent for my app.
So it's an open question, but why should I use Phalcon to manage my Redis connection ?
Performance? don't see how phalcon could be more efficient (has anyone benchmarked it ? ) Error management? not really reliability/stability ? don't think so
I could see a few small benefits, but that's not much:
- if I want to store other types of data (non-session, static data) using redis too
- a few more options for prefix and expiration...
I might be missing something. Please enlighten me if so :)
