-This wiki discusses a feature of LSMCD which is not available in traditional Memcached: separation of individual users' data.  This means that data saved by one user is not visible to any other users. ​ You must have LSMCD v1.2 or higher to use this feature. In Memcached and traditional LSMCD, any data stored is available to all users, which allows fast population of the cache and high utilization. ​ However, it is insecure and thus can't be used to cache any data which is deemed to be sensitive.  ​+This wiki discusses a feature of LSMCD which is not available in traditional Memcached: separation of individual users' data.  This means that data saved by one user is not visible to any other users. ​ You must have LSMCD v1.2 or higher to use this feature.

 This new option allows data to be available to only the user authorized to access it.  Thus the advantages of Memcached performance becomes available to sensitive data. This new option allows data to be available to only the user authorized to access it.  Thus the advantages of Memcached performance becomes available to sensitive data.
