Thanks for the advices Eric, will try.

I have few more questions before definitely make the switch if you don't mind.

ActiveRecord/Redis.
This is the configuration I'm trying out in staging: http://pastie.org/private/zepmdeduvlrvtdkc32unnq

Is there something special that should I know about AR connection pool and Rainbows! + Threadpool? My pool in database.yml is 30.
After a small load test currently I'm sitting around 60/80 connections, which is kinda expected given that also Sidekiq is in action.

I don't like the global $redis connection. Can you, or anyone else, offer any advice how to improve that, if you use it in your projects?
The goal was to keep a connection alive in a single process due to the sheer number of commands that can be put in redis as consequence of actions, but now that I'm using threads it probably needs to be changed.
The cost however for opening a new connection seems high, I was reading this: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/redis-db/xcz5MXykXdk

Thanks for the help,
Claudio
