Practical tips for using SimpleDB

After loading 1 billion records into Amazon SimpleDB, you definitely learn some tips & tricks about it:

  • use multiple domains
  • don’t burst your writes (note: it doesn’t need to be SimpleDB to have issues with bursting writes
  • if service is failing, then back-off (note: not sure which one came first, but Twitter API documentation describes the same retry strategy)
  • make sure you understand the service API
