You'd use something that stores on disk for that, like BerkeleyDB.

Also, the two ideas are kind of at odds.  You typically buy a solid
state disk instead of a ton of RAM because you can't afford to lose
your data if the power goes out.  You use memcached for things where
you don't mind losing data.
