The differences here are pretty obvious:
- Fewer large memcached's allow for higher efficiency of a get_multi.
- More instances mean you may logically partition them better. If you
have datasets which vary widely in size it can be useful.
I'd default to fewer big instances and use threads, and set up anything
else if you really know better.
