Hi, I want to know that whether there is any possiblity for replicationg the data stored in memcache server among multiple memcache servers. I have 5 memcache servers in different places. I need to replicate the data stored in one memcache server to all the other servers also - redundancy. So that if any server went completely down i can have all the memcache data in other servers too.. Thanks if any one help me in this. Thanks & regards, Barakath

This should be (and has often been) asked on the memcached list, but I will answer here. No, there is no replication in memcached. Memcached is simply a cache, not a durable data store. Scott On Thu, May 7, 2009 at 3:49 AM, Barak I.

Tokyo Tyrant acts as a network interface for concurrent access to Tokyo Cabinet databases -your persistence layer-, implementing memcached protocol. Thus you don't need to alter your memcached clients. And you have ruby bindings for that :-) Hope it helps Cheers Alex
