You provided very little information about your requirements, and "to
scale" is just as vague a term. Hence, I recommend an LDAP server,
because it works in many scenarios, can accommodate thousands of users,
and is basically the default solution for this type of write-seldom-
read-often type of user data storage.
As for MySQL, I would personally not use it for authentication unless I
had no other option.
