Caching is ubiquitous and can be found from CPUs to Application Servers.
In the internet age with ever increasing data lookups, caching technologies help us reduce latency. Slow disk reads are replaced with fast memory access. In-memory data grids, spanning multiple machines, store key-value pairs and serializable objects.
In this session, we will look at Memcached, a well-established open source caching solution used by some of the web's biggest hitters. We will also go through the process of setting up a cluster on Amazon EC2. It is an informal techie chat and all are welcome.
