Memcached or ehCache? Performance Benefits of In-Memory Caching
By pelegri on May 19, 2007
Memcached is a distributed, in-memory, cache that was popularized by LiveJournal. Memcached has good performance but it runs as a deamon (diagram) and an interesting question is whether local, cooperating, in-memory caches might do better.
Greg gave a full report on this topic in TS-6039 at JavaOne but the slides are not yet online. Fortunately he just published a short summary in his blog site (see comparison graph). There was also a micro-session at CommunityDay and I'll let you know when we push the slides to the Virtual GlassFish Day page.
