Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9200) Sequences
Date Mon, 18 May 2015 17:32:01 GMT


Robin Schumacher commented on CASSANDRA-9200:

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of detail on how customers want to use them. Current requests
come from Target, Family Search, and Openwave. My notes just say they've tried counters and
instead want Oracle-like sequences. If more detail is needed, we can try and go back to them
to see if more info can be had. Lastly, this isn't a constantly recurring request so not exactly
a white hot priority.

dictate an increasing numeric value.

the cluster, which would eliminate paxos contention at the cost of not being strictly increasing.
