ArangoDB vs Memcached: What are the differences?

Developers describe ArangoDB as "A distributed open-source database with a flexible data model for documents, graphs, and key-values". A distributed free and open-source database with a flexible data model for documents, graphs, and key-values. Build high performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions. On the other hand, Memcached is detailed as "High-performance, distributed memory object caching system". Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data (strings, objects) from results of database calls, API calls, or page rendering.

ArangoDB and Memcached can be categorized as "Databases" tools.

"Grahps and documents in one DB" is the primary reason why developers consider ArangoDB over the competitors, whereas "Fast object cache" was stated as the key factor in picking Memcached.

ArangoDB and Memcached are both open source tools. Memcached with 8.99K GitHub stars and 2.6K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ArangoDB with 8.22K GitHub stars and 576 GitHub forks.

Facebook, Instagram, and Dropbox are some of the popular companies that use Memcached, whereas ArangoDB is used by AresRPG, Stepsize, and Brainhub. Memcached has a broader approval, being mentioned in 755 company stacks & 267 developers stacks; compared to ArangoDB, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

Advice on ArangoDB and Memcached
Needs advice
on
ArangoDBArangoDB
and
PostgreSQLPostgreSQL

Hello All, I'm building an app that will enable users to create documents using ckeditor or TinyMCE editor. The data is then stored in a database and retrieved to display to the user, these docs can contain image data also. The number of pages generated for a single document can go up to 1000. Therefore by design, each page is stored in a separate JSON. I'm wondering which database is the right one to choose between ArangoDB and PostgreSQL. Your thoughts, advice please. Thanks, Kashyap

What are some alternatives to ArangoDB and Memcached?
Neo4j
Neo4j stores data in nodes connected by directed, typed relationships with properties on both, also known as a Property Graph. It is a high performance graph store with all the features expected of a mature and robust database, like a friendly query language and ACID transactions.
MongoDB
MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
PostgreSQL
PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
Cassandra
Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
OrientDB
It is an open source NoSQL database management system written in Java. It is a Multi-model database, supporting graph, document, key/value, and object models, but the relationships are managed as in graph databases with direct connections between records.
