Cloud-backed localStorage by Aaron Rankin

We give our front-end dev team the power of fully persistent, cross-browser key-value storage right from Javascript, using a JS library that mimics HTML5 localStorage but stores data server-side. This powerful concept has organically become a cornerstone of our web app's state management. It keeps the team efficient too, letting our front-end team live in Javascript instead of bouncing between languages, technology layers or teams, anytime they need arbitrary data stored. A multi-layer caching strategy and callbacks keep it speedy and non-blocking. We also automatically namespace keys to scope keys properly. If you work on Javascript-heavy apps, you should check this out.
