Although one can use Coherence as a memory cache layer on top of a DB,
many customer use it in the financial sector as a in-memory key/value

Think of transient data that doesn't need to be saved, but needs to
scale out across hundreds or thousands of nodes.

memcached is making progress, but it is not comparable to coherence
today. Eventually it will probably get there.
