In the Aerospike database, each record (similar to a row in a relational database) stores
data using one or more bins (like columns in a relational database). The major difference
between bins and RDBMS columns is that you don't need to define a schema. Each record can
have multiple bins. Bins accept the data types listed here.
For information about these data types and how bins support them, see this.
Although the bin for a given record or object must be typed, bins in different rows do not
have to be the same type. There are some internal performance optimizations for single-bin namespaces.
