Did you try the scikit-learn's implementation of DBSCAN:
http://scikit-learn.org/stable/modules/clustering.html#dbscan
? I am not sure that it scales, but it's worth trying.

Alternatively, the best way to cluster massive datasets is to use the
mini-batch implementation of KMeans:

Hope this helps,

Gael
