What is a GUID/UUID and How Can it Be Used?
A GUID/UUID (Globally Unique Identifier / Universal Unique Identifier) is a unique identifier that can be used to identify the content of an asset without any human intervention. A GUID can be used to uniquely identify an asset, file, website, photo, image, or any other type of data that you want to track and track over time.
A GUID is also referred to as GUID/UUID. It is a 128-bit number that can be used to identify a file in a computer file system. It is a sequence of 32 hexadecimal digits that are generated. The sequence number allows the system to keep track of which assets are added to an "asset store". Each time an asset is added, it gets incremented by one (from 0) until the next incrementing phase occurs. The system keeps track of changes in assets and records them in a database.
Originally, GUID were created to replace machine names and operating system serial numbers. Despite this, they have been primarily seen in distributed systems such as Unix-like operating systems, databases, or large installations of computer hardware.
