Memcached is a simple, fast and infinitely scalable in-memory object caching system. Dynamic web applications use memcached to store frequently used data, reducing database load.
The AppHarbor memcached add-on is built on the Membase distribution of memcached (Membase Memcached Server) which includes an advanced, per-user security model. The service is fully managed by AppHarbor.
