Hi Garv,

If you don’t want to use Varnish or Memcached on Cloudways then you can simply turn them off. But we recommend you keep them on. If you are using WordPress then there is nothing to worry about.

Just use Cloudways’ recommended setting for Varnish. For Memcached you don’t need to tweak anything, same goes for Apache and Nginx.

You can also add Cloudflare easily while on Cloudways using DigitalOcean. I recently wrote about adding Cloudflare to WP sites here: http://www.cloudways.com/blog/how-to-install-cloudflare-cdn-wordpress/
