memcached For Your Apps: Q&A With Core memcached Server and Client Developers

Moderated by: Matt Ingenthron
Location: Ballroom E Level: Novice

memcached is the de-facto standard way of building a cache into web applications. After getting through the basics of caching hot spots of apps, many are confronted with questions.

  • How do I lock items to prevent concurrent updates?
  • Can I reliably use memcached for sessions?
  • How do I run this across multiple datacenters?

Answers to all of these questions exist, but sometimes it takes some careful thought and application of some patterns to the application.

Bring your questions and your own implementation ideas and patterns to this session to discuss with other users, client developers and server developers of memcached.

Matt, might be worth adding an overview of the Storage Engine and some concrete uses of it (say the bucket engine) to the agenda
