Quizlet is an online learning community and provider of study resources to students and teachers. With over 50 million monthly users.

For a more secure and convenient solution to Memcached node scaling, they switched to Google Cloud's Memorystore. The results were:
cut costs by half,
using only a quarter of their capacity,
bigger footprint,
reduced Memcached ops time,
easier monitoring now,
scaling is so much easier
but the most important is that it eliminated a lot of stress for the SRE team

For me, the elimination of stress from the SRE team is the most important result. People without or with less stress will be much more productive!

 

I would love to read your opinions!
