Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be performed considerably quicker. This goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a particular web page is opened, the application sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
