I think you're mixing 2 different things there. nscd is integrated
with nsswitch and allows you to cache different kinds of system data
(groups, users, etc). IIRC utilities like memcached and redis lack
this integration and I don't know any way of hooking them into
nsswitch. They're actually just caching backends and you need
additional code to make them work with nsswitch.
