So, honestly - Is memcache really that old dinousaur that is a bad choice from a performance perspective when compared to this newcomer called Redis?
Here’s mine: feature-wise Redis has already overpasssed Memcached in almost all aspects. Redis 3.0 will bring Redis Cluster a distributed implementation of a subset of Redis standalone—check this for an detailed explanation of Redis Cluster. Production-wise though, Memcached will not be replaced so easy as so many services rely on it for quite some time.

It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
