MemCachier vs Redis Cloud: What are the differences?

MemCachier: The easiest, most advanced managed memcache for the cloud. MemCachier provides an easy and powerful managed caching solution for all your performance and scalability needs. It works with the ubiquitous memcache protocol so your favourite language and framework already supports it; Redis Cloud: Enterprise-Class Redis for Developers. Redis Cloud is a fully-managed service for running your Redis dataset. It overcomes Redis’ scalability limitation by supporting all Redis commands at any dataset size. Your dataset is constantly replicated, so if a node fails, an auto-switchover mechanism guarantees data is served without interruption.

MemCachier belongs to "Managed Memcache" category of the tech stack, while Redis Cloud can be primarily classified under "Redis Hosting".

Some of the features offered by MemCachier are:

  • High-availability
  • Seamless scalability
  • Multiple proxy servers

On the other hand, Redis Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Infinite scalability, all commands supported
  • Auto-failover with no ops
  • Highest performance, even for small datasets

"Easy add-on to heroku" is the primary reason why developers consider MemCachier over the competitors, whereas "Heroku Addon" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis Cloud.

StackShare, Heroku, and thoughtbot are some of the popular companies that use MemCachier, whereas Redis Cloud is used by Luckycycle, Ztory, and Cronofy. MemCachier has a broader approval, being mentioned in 41 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Redis Cloud, which is listed in 20 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.

      We decided to use MemCachier as our Memcached provider because we were seeing some serious PostgreSQL performance issues with query-heavy pages on the site. We use MemCachier for all Rails caching and pretty aggressively too for the logged out experience (fully cached pages for the most part). We really need to move to Amazon ElastiCache as soon as possible so we can stop paying so much. The only reason we're not moving is because there are some restrictions on the network side due to our main app being hosted on Heroku.
