Good SimpleDB performance tips

I don't usually write blogs that just reference other people's material, but this three part article by Siddharth Anand (first installment, then follow links to other articles) is really worth reading if you use SimpleDB.

BTW, while the local SimpleDB simulator simpledb-dev works OK, for development I usually just access SimpleDB remotely from my laptop. One word of warning: while properly constructed SimpleDB queries can run very quickly from EC2 hosted applications, remote access tends to be 5 to 10 times slower.
