Are you asking if it will be as fast an in-memory access to the data?
No, it won't. It's using TCP sockets across a network. If your
application depends on getting the kind of speed you have with
in-memory access, then memcached alone will not be enough for you. I
don't think it's possible to come close to the speed of in-process
access with an external cache.
