Memcached vs NCache: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is NCache? Distributed In-Memory Datastore. It is an extremely fast and scalable distributed cache for .NET. It helps high traffic server applications remove data storage bottlenecks by caching application and linearly scale to handle extreme transaction loads without slowing down.

Memcached can be classified as a tool in the "Databases" category, while NCache is grouped under "In-Memory Databases".

Memcached is an open source tool with 9K GitHub stars and 2.6K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Memcached's open source repository on GitHub.

        Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
        Ehcache
        Ehcache is an open source, standards-based cache for boosting performance, offloading your database, and simplifying scalability. It's the most widely-used Java-based cache because it's robust, proven, and full-featured. Ehcache scales from in-process, with one or more nodes, all the way to mixed in-process/out-of-process configurations with terabyte-sized caches.
        Varnish
        Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator also known as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You install it in front of any server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is really, really fast. It typically speeds up delivery with a factor of 300 - 1000x, depending on your architecture.
        Hazelcast
        With its various distributed data structures, distributed caching capabilities, elastic nature, memcache support, integration with Spring and Hibernate and more importantly with so many happy users, Hazelcast is feature-rich, enterprise-ready and developer-friendly in-memory data grid solution.
        MongoDB
        MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.

        As part of the cacheing system within Drupal.

        Memcached mainly took care of creating and rebuilding the REST API cache once changes had been made within Drupal.
