On a regular WordPress install, what is the difference between transients and the object cache?

  • Transients are persistent and write to the wp_options. The object cache persists only for the particular page load.
  • Transients are stored in the WordPress database. The object cache is stored on the server where the WordPress install is located.
  • Transients are available for the duration of a user session and apply to all page components. The object cache is available only for scripts.
  • Transients persist only for the particular page load. The object cache is persistent and writes to the wp_options table.
