Beginning cloud development with cloudControl – Part 4 – Memcache

April 9, 2012

<p>Here we are at part four of the <em><strong>Beginning Cloud Development with cloudControl</strong></em> series and in this part, we’re adding <strong><a href="http://uk3.php.net/manual/en/book.memcached.php" title="php Memcached">Memcached support</a></strong>. In <a href="http://www.maltblue.com/php/beginning-cloud-development-with-cloudcontrol" title="Beginning cloud development with cloudControl">part one of the series</a>, we laid the foundation for the application and got up to speed with what <a href="http://cloudcontrol.com/?utm_source=maltblue&utm_medium=Banner&utm_campaign=MaltBlue" title="cloudControl: web - application - platform">cloudControl</a> is, why it works and how to get started using it.</p> <p>Then <a href="http://www.maltblue.com/php/beginning-cloud-development-with-cloudcontrol-part2-mysql" title="Beginning cloud development with cloudControl – Part 2 – MySQL">in part two</a>, we started to flesh out the application that we started building in part one and added MySQL support to it. We showed how to work with cloudControl to manage the key requirements, such as enabling MySQL support, connecting to the MySQL database and keeping the database up to date from a maintenance perspective (creating the database schema and loading data in to the database).</p> <p>Then in <a href="http://www.maltblue.com/php/beginning-cloud-development-with-cloudcontrol-part-mongodb" title="Beginning cloud development with cloudControl – Part 3 – MongoDB">the third part of the series</a>, we replaced MySQL with mongoDB support. Now, in this, the third part of the series, we’re going to finish up with adding <strong><a href="http://uk3.php.net/manual/en/book.memcached.php" title="php Memcached">Memcached support</a></strong>. As the core of the work’s already been done in the application, this tutorial will be shorter and simpler than the previous three. So, get out the code that you worked through from <a href="http://www.maltblue.com/php/beginning-cloud-development-with-cloudcontrol-part2-mysql" title="Beginning cloud development with cloudControl – Part 2 – MySQL">part 2</a>, or download a copy of it from <a href="https://github.com/maltblue/cloudcontrol-project" title="Malt Blue on github">the github repository</a> and let’s get started.</p>
