Using MySQL Proxy to Update Memcached

Jan Kneschke has a very interesting post about how you could use replication and MySQL Proxy to mark entries as dirty in memcached. This way you’re able to expire the data from memcached when it actually is updated on the database level, without having to add another level of abstraction in your application. A very novel approach and it’ll be nice to see how this plays out in practice with 5.1.
