But memcached doesn't have disk-based storage.

At least with MySQL Cluster you can stop/start a node without losing any

It does back up the dataset it's storing in memory to disk, though.  And
if it hasn't committed in a while, it can get the data from another node.

Anyway, I'll stop with the MySQL cluster discussions for now, at least
until I have any code or benchmarks.
