Hi,

I wanted to ask what are popular, scalable ID generation techniques for storing data in RIAK. Some ideas that we are toying with:

  1.  ID Generation server (like Flikr ticket server) - Numeric
  2.  Twitter's Snowflake like implementation- Alphanumeric
  3.  Riak's auto ID generation- Alphanumeric

So far, we are thinking of going with option 2 as it doesn't require node coordination, k-sorted. But we would prefer a uncoordinated numeric Unique Ids.
