I just talked w/ someone who reminded me about the MySQL drop-in
replacement database I recommended last month.

Percona - now at parity with MySQL 5.6:

It basically "fixes" MySQL clustering, so setting up multi-master
replication is easy.  You just have to have an odd number of nodes and tell
it to "go".


Don't need clustering, but working in the cloud?
Interested in "containers" (like docker.io)?

I think Rackspace's cloud MySQL instances are an interesting case study.

We don't use them at work, because they don't support replication, and I
just can't deal with possible downtime at an infrastructure level.... but
if you aren't clustering, they may be a reasonable option for you.  I also
like seeing "real world" container deployments on this scale (since I'm
considering it).


Other databases I use/discussed:

   - http://redis.io/ (memcache, key/value, concurrant)
   - http://www.elasticsearch.org/ (text search, lucene,
   - http://www.mongodb.org/ (NoSQL, document storage, schemaless)
