Like most web applications, memcached and MySQL formed the data foundation beneath Farmville - until mid-2010. As the popularity of that application skyrocketed, a more effective system was needed to sustain FarmVille's 500,000 operations per second. In response, NorthScale, Zynga and NHN developed membase - a distributed, key-value database that is 100% compatible with memcached.
