The recent backing of the Valkey fork of Redis by major tech companies like AWS, Google Cloud, and Oracle sheds light on the ongoing licensing dispute. The switch from permissive BSD license to the more restrictive SSPL led to the fork, creating a rift in the community. This move has significant implications for the future of data storage. Valkey, embraced by the Linux Foundation, aims to provide current Redis users with transition paths and improved features. However, potential divergence in capabilities and the absence of concrete plans for similar features raise questions about its compatibility as a drop-in replacement for Redis. The dispute reflects a shift in technological vision and business interests among the stakeholders of this large-scale database project.
