Came across RethinkDB which claims to be a new kind of database built upon MySQL and designed specifically for solid state drives. The benchmarks on their site look quite impressive.

Jeremy Zawodny of Linux Magazine has an article on it too in which he interviews one of the founders. It's interesting to note that they are essentially "lying" to the MySQL query engine in order to get it to perform on the solid state drives.
