Then it does sound like either one of:
 - Couchbase http://www.couchbase.com - which is what I had in mind as a 
memcached supporting cache/db
 - Riak (as Anthony had suggested)
...would suit your needs.

Riak is mature and massively scalable by design. Couchbase is also highly 
scalable, offers document-oriented storage and a js query interface.

It's hard to predict which would suit you best, as that would depend on 
your data and current infrastructure. 

Both are definitely worth doing the "due diligence" on.
