Caching provides a cost-effective way to get more out of your existing infrastructure, but a poorly designed caching strategy often hurts more than it helps. There are many more options available today, including dedicated hardware appliances to help you design an optimal caching strategy. Join us for this in depth technical session where Frank Mashraqi will demonstrate several advanced technical use cases on how to best leverage memcached to increase the performance and scalability of MySQL driven websites and applications. memcached is the open source distributed memory caching system used by some of the biggest websites in the world like, YouTube, Facebook, LiveJournal and Wikipedia.

Explore more than six advanced use cases including, non-deterministic caches, deterministic caches, memcached for read scalability and distributed replication, a replacement/add-on for file system caches and more.
