I think you mean "vertical scaling sucks". MySQL can be used
horizontally, as you know. :-) (sometimes replication, sometimes
partitioning, sometimes a combination).

I meant using MySQL as a "cache store" -- you don't want to replicate
MySQL (non-cluster) can work beautifully as a substitute for
memcached when you have more data to store than you have memory - and
you can afford waiting for disks.
 I haven't tried using cluster as a cache; but I suppose it'd work
nicely too with the disk storage stuff in 5.1.
