title: Adding memcached

Memcached is an open source, high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, and it's easy to add to your application via the Cloud 66 Dashboard.

Cloud 66's Memcached component is designed for use with Rails and CSV1 (container stack, V1) applications. Newer containerized applications should implement Memcached as a service

Add Memcached

To add Memcached to your application:

You can now watch the logs, as usual to see the progress of the process.

Customize Memcached

To customize Memcached, use the below syntax in your manifest file and redeploy the application with Apply security upgrades option.

        shared_group: db
            memory: 1024
            port: 11215

Check Memcached

You can find the details about Memcached under your Settings & Information, Information tab. Since having Memcached as a separate server will not improve performance, Cloud 66 will install it on each web server, not as a standalone server.
