Can your data be represented as key-value pairs with keys and values being no
more than 255 bytes in length? That's what kvlds does.
Do you need replication? Kivaloo doesn't do that. (Backups are easy, though
-- just copy kivaloo-lbs's state directory.)
Do you need to speak HTTP? Kivaloo only speaks the kivaloo wire protocol.
(I've considered adding a memcached-kvlds protocol shim though.)
