MySQL cluster vs memcached

We really suffer from MySQL replication scalability issues.  Basically you
can scale reads but not writes.......

I'm thinking of migrating some portions of our app to MySQL cluster because
basically it's an all memory DB and (in theory) should scale linearly if we
need to index more data.

Has anyone compared the performance of memcached vs MySQL cluster?  I'm
wondering if we shouldn't be buffering MySQL cluster with memcached........
I'm willing to bet its fast enough that I don't have to..... thoughts?
