Proxy Manager ?

Proxy Manager ?
October 13, 2010 04:00PM
As I am readin and using memcached more (by the way amazing software)
I am looking at sharding, scaling and the whole consistent hashing
stuff. Our environment is PHP 5.3+ by the way.

Im wondering if anything exists that can act as a manager for what is
stored and on which server. Specifically is there not some sort of
proxy server that handles the request and decides which server to
goto?

I appreciate this puts a layer of latency infront of memcached but
(hypothetically if something doesn't exist) if this is a bad idead
then why?

Perhaps a more theoretical post than anything else so thanks in
advance.

The client already handles this.
