I read this article: http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2006/09/27/apc-or-memcached/ from way back when.. I want to get the best caching engine available so that my application is really fast. Of course I don't want to over-cache but I want to at least choose the best thing out there. In that article it says Memcached is slow and apc is fast so why is everyone choosing memcached?
http://framework.zend.com/manual/en/zend.cache.backends.html#zend.cache.backends.twolevels here is says "use a fast one (but limited) like Apc, Memcache… and a "slow" one like File, Sqlite…" do you think using Apc as the fast and Memcache as the slow is a good idea?
