Memcached : small, fast, and "just works"

  • July 24, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Memcache is supported by a huge set of development tools, has great library support
What do you dislike?
Using the TEXT protocol vs. the BINARY protocol can be required to get some clients to work.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use memcached as a sideline cache, to prevent having to go to the database for data that we've recently retrieved. Due to the automatic cache expiration timing feature, we can rest assured that when we fetch something from memcached, it will be "fresh", or non-existent.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
make sure to use the latest version of memcached, and be forewarned that there is no security guardrails.

Great solution for session and object cache

  • October 20, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It's extremely easy to install and start using memcached in your server and also in your local development environment.
What do you dislike?
Not as useful and extensible as Redis. I would not recommend it over it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use memcached for web session management and for key-value storage as well.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Also consider Redis and other solutions. Memcached is pretty easy to configure and use, but every tool has its specific pros and cons.

Simple in-memory storage

  • September 14, 2016
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Ease of use, reliability. Very robust, fast information retrieval, simple integration with any system. Reliable service that has been available for many years so can be relied on.
What do you dislike?
Lack of persistence without add-ons can cause problems, need to ensure you aren't saving any data you can't rebuild.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Faster page and api loads by utilizing it as a cache layer.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Keep it simple, and don't store anything you can't rebuild. Construct scripts to warm the cache on reboots if your caching is vital to app performance.

Super fast and stable, but lacks of any advance methods.

  • June 16, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It's as fast and as stable as it can be. It never crashed. Its performance is unbeatable because of its simplicity, it does what it has to do, and it does it very well.
What do you dislike?
Lack of features. It used to be the best option, but now there are more alternatives (eg, Redis) that are as fast as Memcached. The key and value size limits might be a problem for some. The limit of 1 index is also a problem.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Web site performance. I've used to cache data, reports, authentication tokens, etc. It freed a lot of work from the database and the network.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Unless you need an extreme performance boost, try Redis first. It has fewer limitations and it also performs pretty good. Use Memcached only if you need only a key-value volatile cache.

self adjusting dynamic weights for nodes with load balancing using memcached and custom scripts

  • June 11, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
very fast database for storing keys and other information into memory that would normally be heavy on other databases / applications to request the data. ability to cluster the memcache servers in a distributed pool for high availability and reliability. integrates with many languages using modules/api (such as c, php, perl, python, etc) allowing greater flexibility for usage.
What do you dislike?
it's meant for specific use cases really. assuming that the server restarts, any of the cached data will be gone (it wasn't meant to save it long term). there's some other products that are supposed to be better as well, although i haven't had a need to try/use any of them yet for the purpose of the applications being used with memcached.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
misc_check custom script used with keepalived for the purpose of self adjusting dynamic weights of services (primarily http/s) being load balanced based on the the node system load being checked. it's extremely fast and reliable for the custom check being used and can be integrated for many types of services checked. the daemon itself doesn't really require a large amount of memory, however that would be dependent more so on such data being stored and accessed.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
tuning appropriately for your resources available is necessary to get the best performance. it works great for API's, scripts, web applications, etc. it's almost hard to not find a good use for this program, although other one's such as redis may also be useful and one would need to evaluate which one may be the better solution.

Memcached for oh so many things

  • May 04, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It's blazing fast. As you would expect for something that is being kept in memory but needing to temporarily store something to be accessed one ore more times in the near future by multiple systems it is really hard to beat.
What do you dislike?
There really isn't much of anything to dislike about Memcached.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We store user data and report data in Memcached so our application limits the amount of DB queries we need to perform (redundant reports, for example).
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you have an app that is consuming data from a database, you can more than likely utilize Memcached on some level.

memcached is amazing

  • May 04, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It's fast. 1000 times faster than going to the DB
What do you dislike?
It can only hold 1MB. It can make coding more complicated
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
speed by not going to the DB for info. speed
Recommendations to others considering the product:
The speedup is generally worth the increased problems with having things stored and not being cleared out when they are updated.

easy to implement caching.

  • March 14, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
it's easy to implement the caching by using this.
What do you dislike?
there is no user interface to monitor the system.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
we want to cache lots of values in our production environment. It is easy to implement and maintain.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
if you want implement some caching to your project with the tight deadline, then this is one for you.

Top notch caching system. Your go to cache, simple and done right.

  • February 15, 2016
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Simple operations, great documentation and great performance. The fact that there are numerous binding to all languages is a bonus.
What do you dislike?
Watch out for very large object. Memcached is a KV caching system, don't try to put in their too much stuff.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Research on KV stores performance.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Very good KV store, with very good performance, ease of use and documentation. Keep in mind large object.

Memcached is my cache store of choice

  • December 23, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Memcached is fast and can store large volumes of data without problems.
What do you dislike?
Defaults need to be changed to accept bigger payloads. Had cache misses when a 10mb marshalled object was being rejected.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Speed up applications with caching.
