Scaling requests with MemCached
A nice paper from Facebook about the use of memcached for scaling requests. Classical UDP connection-less techniques, are mixed with TCP coalescing via mcrouter. Also, they implement flow control, new mechanism for cache miss, and excess of requests on a particular key. The concept of pool is quite interesting.
