A distributed memory-caching system.
Memcached is a general-purpose, high-performance, distributed, in-memory object caching system similar to Redis. Memcached is often used to speed up dynamic database-driven web sites by caching data into memory. Memcached components on OpenVMS include:
- libmemcached – a C client library for interfacing to a Memcached server
- mod_memcached_cache – Apache module for use with Memcached, for caching static web pages (Apache 2.1+ only)
