IBM DB2 vs Memcached: What are the differences?

IBM DB2: A family of database server products developed by IBM. DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows is optimized to deliver industry-leading performance across multiple workloads, while lowering administration, storage, development, and server costs; Memcached: 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.

IBM DB2 and Memcached can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

"Rock solid and very scalable" is the primary reason why developers consider IBM DB2 over the competitors, whereas "Fast object cache" was stated as the key factor in picking Memcached.

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 IBM DB2 is used by XMLi5 Ltd., ITAIPU BINACIONAL, and Applic8.
