Attila Kisko, author and maintainer of a Membase .NET client:
Membase is awesome technology, but in many cases I have to be able to interact with my data more directly in the database. I use hash and counter data structures in Redis to implement a number of features in freeblog.hu. I’d probably switch to Membase if it had that sort of functionality.
Or in other words, scalable key-value stores are cool, but sometimes smart data structures fit better. Plus when such advice comes from a person close to your project, it’s usually a good idea to listen to it.
