MySQL Cluster – Time to test?

A friend just sent me a link to MySQL Cluster Sandbox and it looks pretty interesting.  I work on a site that is in the middle of needing bleeding edge database architecture and a good run-of-the-mill redundant system.  Historically we have simply thrown more hardware at the problem, but it seems like we have hit our limit.

While the system is far more read intensive than write – the writes are starting to grow.  Replication is fine and general caching is working to some degree, but it is not solving our problems.  Memcached is being considered, but I am not really sure that is going to solve all of our issues, especially with our projected growth.

I ramble – to tired and have a big presentation in the morning…
