A large number of users use Memcached so as to increase database performance. What is Memcached?
Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and lessen the generated load considerably. Anytime a page on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an ideal option for any Internet site that entices a lot of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting
plan that we are offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache content, so for lots of websites (or for one single traffic-consuming site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will load blazing-fast.
