Every record can potentially have different attributes. SimpleDB also has no data types associated with it's attributes, all data will be stored as strings. AWS SDB Proxy adds a special _resource attribute, allowing storage of multiple models within the same SimpleDB domain. Record ids are generated using a SHA512 hash function to make key collisions extremely unlikely.
