Membrain allows Memcached to scale on flash storage at DRAM speeds, providing an increase in capacity and a reduction in scaling costs by leveraging flash rather than expensive in-memory. Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data resulting from database calls, API calls, or page rendering. It speeds performance of web applications and solves many problems associated with big data. By using up to 1TB of SSD storage per server, Membrain gives your system the speed boost of Memcached without the expense. This holistic and tightly coupled approach allows users to get the most from inexpensive and widely available commodity x86 hardware.
