Memcached-in-the-Cloud by Gear6

Memcached is used as a reference in the NoSQL world for its API and also for performance comparisons. Some NoSQL KV stores are offering a Memcached compatible API and some are even supporting the same protocol.

Startup Gear6 today launched the availability of its memcached appliance on Amazon’s Web Services platform, bringing a widely used distributed memory caching system for web companies to the cloud.

What seems to be missing from the announcement is any mentions of automatic Memcached scaling. Wouldn’t that be an interesting feature?
