Gemcached is a Tanzu GemFire adapter that allows Memcached clients to communicate with a Tanzu GemFire server cluster, as if the servers were memcached servers. Memcached is an open-source caching solution that uses a distributed, in-memory hash map to store key-value pairs of string or object data.

  • How Gemcached Works

    Applications use memcached clients to access data stored in embedded Gemcached servers.

  • Deploying and Configuring a Gemcached Server

    You can configure and deploy Gemcached servers in a Java class or by using the gfsh command-line interface.

  • Advantages of Gemcached over Memcached

    The standard memcached architecture has inherent architectural challenges that make memcached applications difficult to write, maintain, and scale. Using Gemcached with Tanzu GemFire addresses these challenges.
