Time to crawl the interwebs. I’m looking for something relatively small and lightweight, a binary blob cache that I can drop into place, import a module in python and have relatively easy access to.
The keys are likely to be large, the blobs may be several MB. I don’t care a great-deal about persistence.
What I’m looking to achieve is something like ‘distcc’ for asset conversion. The backend doesn’t need to know that, it’s just going to get semi-opaque key values that ultimately serve to compartmentalize hash spaces.
