MySQL has INSERT DELAYED which is async. Of course, it's not the default - you have to specifically choose to call INSERT DELAYED when you know the data you're inserting isn't life-and-death.

INSERT DELAYED does not work for InnoDB tables and is now deprecated since MySQL 5.6. I am not a MySQL user though so I have no idea if there are any alternatives to INSERT DELAYED.

The reason for the deprecation seems to be the many gotchas with it combined with the doubtful performance gains. It seems to have been an ugly hack.
