Scott Mansfield is a Senior Software Engineer at Netflix. He works on EVCache, a high-performance, low latency key-value system. He is the primary author of Rend, an open-source memcached proxy as a part of EVCache. Outside of work, he spends time with his wife and daughter, works on an open-source web crawler named Widow, and hopes winter comes sooner so he can be skiing again.

EVCache is an open source, fast, distributed cache. It is used at Netflix as a cache as well as a data store. EVCache powers user-facing applications, personalization algorithms or various micro-services. Until recently, EVCache stored multiple terabytes of data in RAM with multiple copies of the data for resiliency. With the continuing growth of data, this became a costly proposition.
