And disruption continues in the web spaces as high-scale and hope-to-be high-scale deployments have new options like HBase and Cassandra. MySQL is the incumbent and must improve to remain competitive.

Good point.

But in the classic model of disruption, it's about serving the under-served with a more convenient, easier offering. Is that the case here? Also, is there anything that would prevent the incumbents (MySQL, Oracle, IBM, MSFT) from offering similar products?

It's not to say these aren't significant innovations or that they don't represent valid business opportunities. But it is not clear these are disruptive as described by Clayton Christensen.
