Subject Cassandra data loss
Date Mon, 24 May 2010 15:47:48 GMT
I am evaluating Cassandra as a candidate for our next-gen database. One of
my colleagues told me that "it's not recommended to use it as your system of
Record because it CAN lose data". Can someone with architecture
understanding shed some light on under what circumstance Cassandra cluster
can either lose data or become inconsistent ? (a node in a cluster crashes,
network partitions, I/O glitches, etc.)
