We have suspended posting of switchAbit and twittergram while we investigate problems surrounding requests to SimpleDB.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Queue processing has resumed. Failures were the result of timeouts and malformed responses from SimpleDB. We are working with Amazon to resolve the problem. In addition, we have integrated some defensive coding to minimize the impact of these problems in the future.
Please reply to this comment, or @switchabit on Twitter if you experience any further problems.
Ah, I was wondering why I was having some issues setting up a new pipe. How has your experience with SimpleDB been overall?
I’m a fan of the design. There are a large number of high volume applications that can be built with this model. However, I am concerned that implementation details are not readily available to the developer community. I think a developer should generally understand how the system they are using works.
I think the recent service interruptions are just growing pains. Thankfully, there is someone to call. :)
For the record, I am biased… see link below.
