Memcached "cluster"

Just looking for some clarification.

It is up to the application to distribute the keys across a memcached "cluster" 
memcached instances do not pass information between each other.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

So an example of how memcached could be used would be setting up one instance 
per web server and each web server uses its own memcached instance.

I was wondering if there was a way to have all the memcached instances act as 
one? So a key stored in one instance is available to all instances.
