If I'm reading this right, Amazon Route 53 supports up to 5 API requests per second writing up to 10^3 records per request. Also, writes are free, while reads cost as little as $0.20 / 10^6 -- cheaper than DynamoDB! I'm... seriously considering using Route 53 as a database.

I mean, seriously: DynamoDB has (at great expense!) Global Tables... but Route 53 is not only replicated between AWS Regions, it's replicated to every single AWS edge point *at no added expense*.

If you want to access a database from a Lambda@Edge function, I can't imagine how any alternative offered by Amazon would come close to using Route 53, on either pricing or performance.

I really hope that someone from Amazon ( maybe?) tells me why this is a bad idea soon, because otherwise I'm going to start writing some code.

I've seen TXT records (ab)used as a configuration management replication system. It was actually kind of clever, not that I'd recommend it.

Yeah, I've seen that too. And they're widely used for proof-of-domain-ownership authentication mechanisms. I'm thinking of using them + lambda@edge to make cloudfront invalidation faster.

The day when Tarsnap supports it as a storage backend will be The Day™.

Old joke. You could use Google cloud print as an MP3 server next

Yes, I know it's an old joke. The thing is, after running the numbers I'm not joking any more...
