But this post isn’t about switching from a volatile cache to a persistent solution. It is about removing the dumb part from the memcached setup.
So I thought I’ll read about the advantages of virtual nodes/buckets and elastic clusters, cold vs warm caches, cluster recoverability, the widely used memcached protocol and the possibility to use extensions in future versions, etc. Instead I’ve learned about Moxy-based cluster configuration discoverability and how stupid the memcached PHP libraries are.
But I really enjoyed Matt Ingenthron’ quote:
at Membase Inc they view Memcached as a rabbit. It is fast, but it is pretty dumb and procreates quickly. Before you know it, it will be running wild all over your system.
