[erlang-questions] kv store as a service
Fri Apr 4 14:10:13 CEST 2014
This is my current setup:
* a bunch of $5/month digital ocean droplets 
* these droplets have a 20GB SSD harddrive
Now, I need to have a gigantic key-value store. I don't want to deal
with the error condition of "error: you ran out of disk space"
In my particular design, I only have "create new value". I don't
have "update value". Thus, I don't have to worry about invalidating
caches, and intend to use the 20GB SSD drives as as "cache" for the
real key-value store.
Now, my question is: what should I use for my key-value store?
I want to optimize for:
* minimum cost
* minimum administration
Currently, the best I have is Amazon S3. (I'd prefer to not setup my
own Riak cluster + deal with replication + how many servers to run +
... ). I'm okay with the 99.99% (or whatever SLA Amazon S3 provides).
Question: Is S3 the right approach as a giant K-V store for my
Erlang nodes to hit, or should I be using something else?
 This is not an advertisement for DO. I do not have any DO equity.
