Subject INT128 Column Support Interest
Date Thu, 16 Nov 2017 22:19:27 GMT
Hi all,

As a part of adding DECIMAL support to Kudu it was necessary to add
internal support for 128 bit integers. Taking that one step further and
supporting public columns and APIs for 128 bit integers would not be too
much additional work. However, I wanted to gauge the interest from the
community.

My initial thoughts are that having an INT128 column type could be useful
for things like UUIDs, IPv6 addresses, MD5 hashes and other similar types
of data.

Is there any interest or uses for a INT128 column type? Is anyone currently
using a STRING or BINARY column for 128 bit data?

Thank you,
Grant
