Heroic vs Memcached: What are the differences?

Developers describe Heroic as "A scalable time series database based on Cassandra and Elasticsearch, by Spotify". Heroic is Spotify's in-house time series database. It was built to address the challenges Spotify was facing with near real-time data collection and presentation at scale. 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.

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

Heroic and Memcached are both open source tools. It seems that Memcached with 8.99K GitHub stars and 2.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Heroic with 710 GitHub stars and 89 GitHub forks.
