Memcached vs Microsoft SQL Server: What are the differences?
Developers describe Memcached 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. On the other hand, Microsoft SQL Server is detailed as "A relational database management system developed by Microsoft". Microsoft® SQL Server is a database management and analysis system for e-commerce, line-of-business, and data warehousing solutions.
Memcached and Microsoft SQL Server can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.
"Fast object cache", "High-performance" and "Stable" are the key factors why developers consider Memcached; whereas "Reliable and easy to use", "High performance" and "Great with .net" are the primary reasons why Microsoft SQL Server is favored.
Memcached is an open source tool with 8.99K GitHub stars and 2.6K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Memcached's open source repository on GitHub.
Facebook, Instagram, and Dropbox are some of the popular companies that use Memcached, whereas Microsoft SQL Server is used by Stack Exchange, Intuit, and MIT. Memcached has a broader approval, being mentioned in 755 company stacks & 267 developers stacks; compared to Microsoft SQL Server, which is listed in 478 company stacks and 443 developer stacks.
