memcached: All content tagged as memcached in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
Just in case you thought someone made up the whole thing about the status of CouchDB being confusing:
On the other hand I’m still trying to figure out if things in CouchDB land were more confusing than the various Hadoop versions out there. If you compare the two genealogy trees you’ll notice a reversed pattern.

If you take a look at the topic of security in the NoSQL context, you’ll notice that things are far from being perfect. So, any contributions in this area are welcome. Patrik Karlsoon added a couple of network exploration Nmap scripts for Riak, Redis, and Memcached. And while these will not help much with security they might proove useful for managing your NoSQL deployments:
Added the script riak-http-info that lists version and statistics information from the Basho Riak distributed database.
Added the script memcached-info that lists version and statistics information from the distributed memory object caching service memcached
Added the script redis-info that lists version and statistic information gathered from the Redis network key-value store.
Added the redis library and the script redis-brute that performs brute force password guessing against the Redis network key-value store.

Q: Copy MySQL to RAM as a poor man’s memcached replacement?
A: Use the the MEMORY storage engine on a read only slave to do your reads from, is exactly what you really want and a sane setup. Forget “dumping it to disk” (?!) or other strange things.
You can even put the slave as another instance on your existing server if you can’t afford to setup a dedicated slave, but properly tuning the MySQL parameters for mostly read workloads will bring a significant performance enhancement too!
