> Does cassandra/thrift support asynchronous IO calls?

asynchronous calls are really a client-side thing. I believe that there is
currently no async version of Thrift, but if one did arrive, it could be
used with Cassandra.

The fact that Cassandra uses one-thread-per-connection isn't relevant to how
synchronous it is.

Of course you could use something like Gearman to schedule Cassandra tasks -
you'd need to implement a worker process though.
