Memcached vs PerconaXtraDBCluster: What are the differences?

Developers describe Memcached 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. On the other hand, PerconaXtraDBCluster is detailed as "Percona XtraDB Cluster is an active/active high availability and high scalability open source solution for MySQL® clustering". Percona XtraDB Cluster is an active/active high availability and high scalability open source solution for MySQL® clustering. It integrates Percona Server and Percona XtraBackup with the Codership Galera library of MySQL high availability solutions in a single package that enables you to create a cost-effective MySQL high availability cluster.

Memcached and PerconaXtraDBCluster can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

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.

      What are some alternatives to Memcached and PerconaXtraDBCluster?
      Redis
      Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache, and message broker. Redis provides data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, geospatial indexes, and streams.
      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.
