Have you considered mongodb?
It's a no-sql that internally uses a binary form of json. It provides
some sql-ish query functionality, and indexing.
Json allows most of the benefits of XML (structured documents) in a
much more compact format.
It is scalable (sharding, replication), and has a map-reduce
functionality built right into it.
