hi , yesterday memcached   was entered in production on french  
Ministere of finances  (minefi) : 15000 when 50000 users.

I use  memcached for stocking  apache::session instead mysql .

yes , memcached is'nt a fiable backend , bu my session expires with the  
windows of browser.

thanks for memcached team

I will work upon API  perl for memcached :
- callback function for the choise of bucket.
- just the fail over not the load balancing (a principal server + an 
another server for rescue) .
