In some situations, users would like to co-locate related data to ensure that failure of a node would affect only related data, rather than a single node failure affecting possibly all user's data. This is referring to supporting the 'hashkey' function that exists in libcouchbase.

Comment by Matt Ingenthron [ 03/Jul/14 ]
Note that I've assigned this to myself as this would need to be considered as part of a bigger change. Couchbase Server is not tested in this fashion where data may be unevenly distributed and having this supported by some clients and not others would be a concern. I wanted to track the request for this feature, however, so I've posted it here.
