I have two IIS servers and two MySQL servers. On all servers I have some available memory (More than a GB). What is the standard way to deploy memcached?

Should I add a new server especially for memcached, or should I use my existing servers? If so, which servers?

Thanks in advance

Whatever works. It's generally better to separate concerns, but it's also much more expensive to dedicate hardware. We run memcached on a bunch of machines that are used for other purposes, allocating 2 GB out of 8 GB available, and it all runs just fine.
