ProcessOne releases OneCached, a Memcached in erlang

ProcessOne has just released OneCached, a Memcached server and client implementation written in Erlang.

OneCached is a new Memcached server and client implementation written from scratch in Erlang by ProcessOne.

From the Memcached website:

What is Memcached?

Free & open source, high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, generic in nature, but intended for use in speeding up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load.

Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data (strings, objects) from results of database calls, API calls, or page rendering.

Memcached is simple yet powerful. Its simple design promotes quick deployment, ease of development, and solves many problems facing large data caches. Its API is available for most popular languages.

OneCached supports the set, add, replace, get, incr, decr, delete, flush_all and quit commands. It doesn’t handle expiration time.

You call pull the source code from the public repository at:

git clone git://

To compile, just run make, and to start, just type:

bin/onecachedctl start

OneCached is released under the Erlang Public License (EPL), version 1.1. It is available from ProcessOne Labs.
