Redis works great with Clojure when you use the Carmine API.
Some of the features of Redis could be duplicated in your app, or are features that exist in the Clojure APIs. So, knowing when to use Clojure and when to use Redis is important. Use Redis when there is a chance that multiple servers may need access to the same messaging, session, or cached data. Also, use Redis anywhere you need an extremely fast-and-simple drop-in replacement for a database.

Introduction to Redis with Clojure integrated as the client.
This is basic session and caching management tutorial. Globally accessible data should go in a Redis key-value store.
