Description gsheldon 2012-10-23 20:23:27 EDT
Need to include a topic outlining the benefits of migrating from memcached.

Some points from list discussion should be considered for inclusion in docs:

1) it should be a drop-in replacement with better scale, durability and dynamic elasticity.
2) it's not as fast as JDG with HotRod

 - use case of backing the cache with a database.  
 - the network demand of larger cached items.  

When HotRod protocol is used to connect to a distributed cache in client/server, there is no need to specify hostnames and ports of each node in the remote cache. When using Memcached the hostnames and ports do need to be specified. This can have a significant impact for clients intending to add and remove remote cache nodes frequently (eg on IaaS).
