Does it make sense to use REDIS instead of shared variables

Does anyone have an opinion on "in memory" key-value stores that are accessible over a network?

I do. REDIS is great. It's much nicer to work with than shared variables or OPC. The downsides I can think of are:

1) You need a Linux server or Windows new enough to have WSL2 to run the server. There is no official Windows build

2) The protocol is simple, but the API is pretty big. I don't know if anyone has created a publicly available LabVIEW client. You can put together a client library with only the most common commands pretty quickly though.
