Re: md5 hash key and splits
The Facebook devs have mentioned in public talks that they pre-split their tables and don't use automated region splitting. But as far as I remember, the reason for that isn't predictability of spreading load, so much as predictability of uptime & latency (they don't want an automated split to happen at a random busy time). Maybe that's what you mean, Mohit?
