Thanks for bringing it up.
Yes, we're aware of this work but we feel that they've taken a
long-winded approach to provide caching of file attributes and data by
using mem-cached. It is an interesting approach but the combination of
io-cache, read-ahead and write-behind, while being far far simpler in
design and usage, already handles a large number of
use cases envisioned by the authors.

Of course, if you're considering using memcached-based approach, we'd
be interested in hearing about your experience with glusterfs+memcached
