HandlerSocket is great, but don't compare it to Memcache just yet.

The HandlerSocket plugin for MySQL currently lacks atomic operations .  It is impossible to implement counters (increment/decrement value) or REPLACE functionality with the current implementation. 

It currently exceeds the performance of Memcache for get/set operations, but I want to see how fast it is once atomic operations are implemented. Until then, I don't think it is a serious contender for replacing Memcache for the cache layer in a complex environment.

Very nice, gives me a lot of inspiration being right in the midst of a redesign. It’s all in the details and comment forms are definitely overlooked more often than not. Time well spent on this post.
