I'm working on a project that needs to consume a JSON stream (approximately 1MB / minute), and parse and insert objects into a database. Amazon's DynamoDB or SimpleDB seem like attractive options for this.

Is there a web service that can run a very simple script to eat the data and put it in a database? I could use a worker on Heroku or Elastic Beanstalk, or even pure EC2, but I'd like to find a service that's much cheaper, due to the very low amount of bandwidth and CPU required.

(Sorry for the crappy tags. I'm not even sure where to categorize this question.)

The lower end AWS instances are not much money. You didn't mention how big of a database you will need or how large it will grow -- that is where your expense will be. –  gahooa Feb 28 '13 at 1:08
    
I don't imagine it'd be over 5GB or so. I'm wondering about the actual processing platform since the database would be hosted on AWS. –  wjl Feb 28 '13 at 1:17
