Memcached (also called memcache) is a high-performance key-value cache server that is a perfect complement to a relational database, especially MySQL.
Memcached can help speed up your applications by offloading intensive work from the database server. You can cache the results of queries, complex calculations, snippets of rendered HTML, user sessions, and many more common uses. Memcached is perfectly suited for dynamic web applications, which often have a very high ratio of reads to writes and transient data such as sessions and counters of "hot" content. Memcached help you store this non-transactional data outside of the database, where it is much easier and less expensive to work with.
