This week, memcached, a piece of software that prevents much of the Internet
from melting down, turns 10 years old. Despite its age, memcached is still
the go-to solution for many programmers and sysadmins managing heavy
workloads. Without memcached, Ars Technica would likely be unable to serve
this article to you at all.
According to a commenter on HN, memcached’s 10th birthday would actually be tomorrow (May 22nd). I’m pretty sure it will outlive today.
✚ I’ve left a comment myself on HN in which I express my admiration for obvious tools that have changed the face of software development (e.g. memcached, JUnit, etc.)
