Distributed key-value store for large amount of content?

What would you do now if you need huge media storage for your photos or videos? You can wait for Facebook to opensource its Haystack storage but that may never happen... You can try Mogilefs but you will run soon into the same problem as if you would store files directly in file system because Mogilefs stores every object in a separate file. But here might be the solution for your problems - distributed Key-Value store which uses stable Tokyo Cabinet storage and can be accesses with generic memcached client: http://kumofs.sourceforge.net/ .
