The Advanced tab gives you swift access to a set of advanced tools, among them the Memcached distributed memory object caching system and the Varnish Cache web application accelerator, which will help you optimize your web sites and applications without needing to log out of the Control Panel. Depending on the web hosting plan, these features are either included by default or are available in the form of easy-to-get upgrades. InnoDB and NodeJS support is offered as well.
Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator also referred to as an HTTP accelerator. You can install it in front of any server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is really, really fast and will improve the loading speed of your web site. One of the essential virtues of Varnish Cache is the flexibility of its domain-specific language, VCL, which allows you to choose how incoming requests should be tackled.
Memcached is a general-purpose memory object caching system for boosting the speed of dynamic database-powered sites. It is used to decrease the number of times an external data source (such as a DB or API) is read by caching data and objects in RAM. The Memcached distributed memory caching system uses a two-tier architecture. The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is used by some of the most traffic-heavy web sites on the World Wide Web and is supported by famous web applications like Joomla and WordPress.
InnoDB is the default storage engine for the MySQL open-source RDBMS. A database engine is the primary software component that a DBMS uses to create, read, modify and delete data from a database. The latest release of InnoDB offers considerable improvements in performance, dependability and functionality. InnoDB provides the standard ACID transaction properties, along with declarative referential integrity support. InnoDB is included as standard in most binaries distributed by MySQL AB.
