Gemcached

Gemcached is a vFabric GemFire adapter that allows Memcached clients to communicate with a 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.

For information about Memcached, see http://www.memcached.org.
