Redis was born later in 2009. So it's not surprising that Redis is stronger than Memcached. Enable Redis on HawkHost Step 1: Turn on the Redis cache Open HawkHost's cPanel.\u00a0Go to the Hawk Host Links section, click on\u00a0Server Application Manager:\u00a0 Next, click on the Enable link to turn on the Redis server.\u00a0 The server startup process takes at least 5 minutes.
