Memcached vs SQLite: 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 SQLite? A software library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine. SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.
Memcached and SQLite can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.
"Fast object cache", "High-performance" and "Stable" are the key factors why developers consider Memcached; whereas "Lightweight", "Portable" and "Simple" are the primary reasons why SQLite is favored.
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.
According to the StackShare community, Memcached has a broader approval, being mentioned in 755 company stacks & 267 developers stacks; compared to SQLite, which is listed in 314 company stacks and 477 developer stacks.

Used during the "build process" of Coolfront Mobile's Flat rate search engine database. Flat rate data that resides in Salesforce is transformed using SQLite into a format that is usable for our mobile Flat rate search engine (AKA: Charlie).
RDBTools is a self-hosted application, and it is important that the installation process is simple. With SQLite, we create a new database file for every analysis. Once the analysis is done, the SQLite file can be thrown away easily.
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.
Distributed cache exposed through Google App Engine APIs; use to stage fresh data (incoming and recently processed) for faster access in data processing pipeline.
All the dynamic data (i.e.: jobs) is stored in a simple SQLite database.
Все динамические данные (вакансии) хранятся в простой SQLite БД.
Memcache caches database results and articles, reducing overall DB load and allowing seamless DB maintenance during quiet periods.
There's really no call for something heavier for this site. SQLite is simple, easy to use and quite reliable given its age.
Used to cache most used files for our clients. Connected with CloudFlare Railgun Optimizer.
