James Phillips of NorthScale about scaling out with Membase on VMWare (real interview starts at around 1’35”):
Considering Membase is persisting to disk (as opposed to its little brother memcached which is memory only)
, I’m wondering if virtualized environments provide good enough IO.
- As many other DBMS, Membase keeps “hot data” in memory, but it also writes it to disk for durability. (↩)
