Announcements, New Features, and How Tos
Today we took part in a webinar hosted by Joyent covering the topic of Platform-as-a-Service vs. Do-it-yourself. It was great fun and covered some important questions on MemCachier, what it is the team here believes in and why we are proud to be part of the PaaS movement. You can find a recording of the webinar here.
We are excited to announce that MemCachier will be taking part in a webinar put on by our friends at Joyent. The webinar will be a panel based discussion on the topic of Do-It-Yourself Vs. as-a-Service model and will take place next Wednesday the 12th of December at 10am. We hope the discussion of the trade-offs and benefits will be rewarding to all participants. Questions will be from audience members, so if you’ve ever wanted to chat with us (David will be on deck), then this is your chance!
Some of our customers in Amazon’s us-east-1 region (Virginia) noticed degraded performance and partial outages starting Friday, 11/16 through Sunday, 11/18, and again on Wednesday, 11/21. We want to take this opportunity to explain what happened.
We made a slight change to the analytics dashboard to show 30 days of usage data. Previously we were only showing 7 days. Take a look at your dashboard and tell us what you think.
Despite being the go-to scaling solution for most production websites, Memcache often isn’t used to its full potential. Most developers only know about the
delete operations. However, Memcache has a broader set of operations that help developers build more advanced apps with less code and even further improved performance.
We’re excited to announce that MemCachier is now available in EC2, AppFog, dotCloud, and CloudBees. Now developers can speed up page loads and improve their app’s scalability with MemCachier’s memcache solution.
Today we’re announcing the general availability of our analytics dashboard – a simple tool to give you more insight into how you’re using memcache.
This dashboard is the start of what will eventually become the most advanced usage analysis tool available. The current feature list includes:
- Current usage: bytes and number of objects
- Usage history, in bytes
- Cache flush button
Moving forward we plan to provide much more in-depth usage statistics. We’re already working on the next version – let us know if you have feature requests you’d like us to consider.
2pm rolls around and you’re already tired of sitting all day. So you slouch over your computer for the rest of the day. By the evening you’re exhausted, your back and wrists are sore, and you’re dreading doing it again tomorrow. Sound familiar?
We got tired of sitting so we built $22 standing desks, constructed from IKEA parts and wood screws.
