non-relational databases.  Relational databases like MySQL tend to
heavily rely on random access, which is governed by the slow disk seek
rates.  On the other hand, non-relational database pioneered by Google's
Map/Reduce framework operate at much faster disk transfer rates.  Open
source solutions incorporating these ideas exist, such as Yahoo's Hadoop
and CouchDB.

Are there currently (or plans for) any mySQL engines with this type of
