According to: https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-engineering/monitoring-cache-with-claspin/10151076705703920

Facebook has two major cache systems: Memcache, which is a simple
lookaside cache with most of its smarts in the client, and TAO, a
caching graph database that does its own queries to MySQL.

The NSDI'13 paper introduces more about Memcache: https://www.usenix.org/conference/nsdi13/scaling-memcache-facebook
