I wouldn't say this is true.  I mean, you are obviously going to have to
make some tradeoffs, but there is a lot of work being done these days to
solve almost this exact problem. Dynamo does almost exactly this, for
example, and there are several efforts to make open source clones of it.

Having said that, I think S3 is perfect for the job.
