yes, i meant memcached.

Is this more a separate product for static websites?

Does it work with web database applications? does it have any cons if you use it with Mysql/php.

I don't really think of it in terms of data base applications.  To me, it's more of a way to store objects for high-speed update and retrieval.  This page shows some of the ways it can be used.
http://libmemcached.org/Clients.html

Of course it is compatible with static or dynamic web sites and with php/mysql sites of all sizes.   Some users include Yahoo, Twitter, and I believe Digg and Facebook, too.
