Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6477) Global indexes

Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-6477:

bq. Why not call the feature "high cardinality index" since that's the use case it is focused
on, right?

As I see it, the focus is on making denormalization trivial, not on indexing - which is why
I agree with Sylvain that we should drop the KEYS-only part, and why 'index' in the name is

> Local indexes are suitable for low-cardinality data, where spreading the index across
the cluster is a Good Thing.  However, for high-cardinality data, local indexes require querying
most nodes in the cluster even if only a handful of rows is returned.
