Memcached is a popular caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be executed noticeably quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a given web page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any old information.
