If you have to retain it for a minute or a month doesn't change that
you "have to retain it" (if that's the case).

Then you are using it as a (relatively unreliable) database.
In your situation, the typical setup is to save the data in a
"proper" database (too).
Another variation that sometimes works is to divide the data up in
"really not important" (memcached only) and "important" (real
database + memcached if needed).
