Gear6 Cloud Cache is the first commercial Memcached offering for cloud platforms and delivers dramatically higher memory efficiency. Additionally, Gear6 Cloud Cache is the only Memcached service for the cloud that can leverage cloud-based storage to increase cache depth by several orders of magnitude.

The Gear6 Cloud Cache includes the following key features:

  • More efficient Cache - Optimized memory management delivers more high speed cached data per cloud image: up to 50% increase in DRAM efficiency per cloud image with no performance degradation

  • 100X cache depth increase - Auto configured transparent block-based cloud storage access enables a two-tiered caching mechanism, meaning more utility per EC2 instance - a unique feature of Gear6 Cloud Cache.
