Redis is a very popular open-source, networked, in-memory, key-value data store. It is known for high performance, flexibility, a rich set of data structures, and a simple straightforward API. MS Open Tech has been working with the Redis community to build a production-ready Windows port of Redis, including 64-bit support, an installer for Windows Azure, NuGet support, and much more.

Per guidance from Redis creator Salvatore Sanfilippo (@antirez), the Windows version is currently available on the MS Open Tech GitHub repository. You can download source code, contribute to the project, or click Watch to follow new developments. For some ideas about how to use Redis in your own applications and services, see antirez's blog post "How to take advantage of Redis just adding it to your stack."
