The first version of our “Object Cache” cPanel plugin is now available within all cPanel Shared and Reseller services. Within the plugin you can enable Memcached and/or Redis on a per-account basis.
Memcached and Redis are popular in-memory data stores that are often used to improve the performance of web applications. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of using these technologies in your application.
One of the key benefits of using Memcached or Redis is that they provide extremely fast access to data. Since these technologies store data in memory, they can access it much faster than a traditional disk-based database. This can help improve the performance of your web application, allowing it to respond to requests faster and handle more traffic.
Another benefit of using Memcached or Redis is that they offer a number of useful features. For example, both technologies support various data structures, such as strings, lists, sets, and hashes, which can be used to store and manipulate data in different ways.
In addition to their speed and feature set, Memcached and Redis are also easy to integrate with existing applications. Many web frameworks and languages, such as PHP, include built-in support for these technologies, making it easy to add them to your application without significant changes to your code. WordPress is one of the more popular PHP based applications that our clients use and many of the popular caching plugins such as LiteSpeed cache do fully support both Object Cache models.
Overall, Memcached and Redis are powerful technologies that can greatly improve the performance of your web application. By using them, you can ensure that your application can handle a large amount of traffic and data, and provide a fast and responsive user experience.
