+1 vote

The concepts of the two seem very similar. How do the two compare and contrast? In simple terms, what applications are best for each?

Both are different and serves different needs -
memcached is a caching tool which run on the local machine (i.e. server) stores the DB queries or small files so that frequent DB access can be avoided.

Whereas CDN i.e. Content Delivery Networks caches web content/images/css/js on a global scale to provide latency and load improvements.

For a better delivery both are required as serves different purpose. Let me know if still has some doubt.

When I'm running PHP+memcache, I cannot store values into memcache. My PHP version is 5.4.12 and memcache version is 3.0.8

I am setting ini_set('display_errors', true); and error_reporting(E_ALL); and getting the notice:

Notice: MemcachePool::set(): Server (tcp 11211, udp 0) failed
with: Network timeout (0) in xxx/test/my_test.php
on line XX

and when I try to use the "telnet 11211". It show like this:

$ telnet 11211
