I’ve got a couple of WordPress sites that would benefit from an LCache implementation. The WP LCache plugin will make it possible. Looking forward to checking this out.
For sites concerned with high traffic, speed for logged-in users, or dynamic pageloads, a high-speed and persistent object cache is a must. WP LCache improves upon Memcached and Redis object cache implementations by using APCu, PHP’s in-memory cache, in a way that’s compatible with multiple web nodes. Under the hood, WP LCache uses LCache, a library that applies the tiered caching model of multi-core processors (with local L1 and central L2 caches) to web applications.

There’s a reason why WordPress has a greater than 25% market share among web content management systems, and it’s not because its codebase adheres to the latest development methodologies.
