Speed up Ruby-on-Rails with memcached

“Today I learned about memcached, which I’d heard of before, but never really investigated. From the project’s site, ‘memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, generic in nature, but intended for use in speeding up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load.’ So, even though I don’t have a huge amount of traffic, I still have dynamic sites, and I’m always looking at ways to speed up my Typo blog. So, using memcached, you can get a big performance boost in databases calls, which sold me on giving it a go.”
