MemCachier vs Redis To Go: What are the differences?
Developers describe MemCachier as "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. On the other hand, Redis To Go is detailed as "Simple Redis hosting". Redis To Go was created to make the managing Redis instances easier, whether it is just one instance or serveral. Deploying a new instance of Redis is dead simple, whether for production or development.
MemCachier can be classified as a tool in the "Managed Memcache" category, while Redis To Go is grouped under "Redis Hosting".
"Easy add-on to heroku" is the top reason why over 17 developers like MemCachier, while over 4 developers mention "Heroku Add-on" as the leading cause for choosing Redis To Go.
According to the StackShare community, MemCachier has a broader approval, being mentioned in 41 company stacks & 11 developers stacks; compared to Redis To Go, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 4 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.
