Amazon DynamoDBAmazon DynamoDB

Hello there! I want to build a web code-sharing tool, and I was wondering which database is suitable for storing source code and version. I thought about Amazon DynamoDB because it scales very well, but I'm afraid it could not satisfy all my access patterns. On the other hand, I have PlanetScaleDB, a serverless MySQL database meaning I will not have to worry about scaling, but I'm wondering if it is suitable for storing source code and accessing it quickly.

I want to use it on my blog to show source code on my posts. I have around 10k views per month, and a blog post has around 5 - 15 code snippets. It will continue to grow since I write frequently. So, I want a database that will not get swamped while blog posts and visitors increase.

Can you help me make a choice, please? I really appreciate any help you can provide.
