Re: Instance IDs and Multiple Zones


I know you don't want to resurrect a past discussion. But, UUIDs are
designed to solve these kind of problems, frankly. The decision to go
with integer IDs is a poor one, and will be negatively affecting the
scalability and architecture of our systems well into the future.

I'd love to see a discussion around moving away from internal integer
identifiers and towards UUID internal identifiers at the next summit.

Just my 2 cents,
