> Below you will find a Redis clone, pydis, written in < 250 lines of idiomatic Python code, providing a subset of redis' functionality for which there are official benchmarks.

> Briefly, pydis is ~60% as fast as Redis measured in number operations per second.

In otherwords it's 40% slower than Redis and doesn't need to account for probably half of the things redis needs to account for.

I don't think the results of this experiment proves anything accept that interpreted code will always be somewhat slower, which is pretty obvious.
