Memcached or Redis? Itrsquo;s a question that nearly always arises in any discussion about squeezing more performance out of a modern, database-driven web application. When performance needs to be improved, caching is often the first step taken, and Memcached or Redis are typically the first places to turn.These renowned cache engines share a number of similarities, but they also have important differences. Redis, the newer and more versatile of the two, is almost always the superior choice.[ Which NoSQL database should you use? Let InfoWorld be your guide. NoSQL standouts: The best key-value databases. | NoSQL standouts: The best document databases. | Keep up with the hottest topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]Redis vs. Memcached for caching Letrsquo;s start with the similarities.

Both Memcached and Redis serve as in-memory, key-value data stores, although Redis is more accurately described as a data structure store.

Both Memcached and Redis belong to the NoSQL family of data management solutions, and both are based on a key-value data model.

They both keep all data in RAM, which of course makes them supremely useful as a caching layer.
In terms of performance, the two data stores are also remarkably similar, exhibiting almost identical characteristics (and metrics) with respect to throughput and latency.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Introducing WhiteBear

As a part of our Kaspersky APT Intelligence Reporting subscription, customers received an update in mid-February 2017 on some interesting APT activity that we called WhiteBear.
It is a parallel project or second stage of the Skipper Turla cluster of activity documented in another private report. Like previous Turla activity, WhiteBear leverages compromised websites and hijacked satellite connections for command and control (C2) infrastructure.
The CPUrsquo;s cache reduces memory latency when data is accessed from the main system memory.

Developers can and should take advantage of CPU cache to improve application performance.How CPU caches work Modern CPUs typically have three levels of cache, labeled L1, L2, and L3, which reflects the order in which the CPU checks them.

CPUs often have a data cache, an instruction cache (for code), and a unified cache (for anything).

Accessing these caches are much faster than accessing the RAM: Typically, the L1 cache is about 100 times faster than the RAM for data access, and the L2 cache is 25 times faster than RAM for data access.[ 9 lies programmers tell themselves. | 9 bad programming habits we secretly love. ]When your software runs and needs to pull in data or instructions, the CPU caches are checked first, then the slower system RAM, and finally the much slower disk drives.

Thatrsquo;s why you want to optimize your code to seek what is likely to be needed from the CPU cache first.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
