Memcached Database Use

How abstracted are those 230 tables from the millions of lines of  
code? Are you using an ORM or is everything explicitly tied to the  
underlying schema?

While Memcached can be used for row-level caching, it is ideally  
suited for caching in the Model layer of an MVC application.

One approach might be to identify a small number (< 5) of areas in  
your code that would most directly benefit from caching, and  
implement a first pass there. Once that’s working and you’re more  
familiar with Memcached, look into a more comprehensive solution.
