    I'm using it to solve an interesting database scaling problem. Basically per-user quarantine storage for spam. This doesn't scale too well in a traditional database as you get a single index across one huge table clustered on (userid, column) and that index becomes very very hard to maintain and optimise. By giving every user their own DB I get around this issue, and it's very VERY fast.
