But does Phalcon still need Memcache to improve speed ?


Access a busy database is expensive for a web application, it often involves many accesses to hard disks and/or networks , Memcached allows you to temporary store data directly in memory instead of access a busy database all the time improving speed.

You can get rid of default session's handler (files) and to use memcacheD as a session bag instead. So, it is favorable to cache some apps parts even with Phalcon.
