Subject Why Cassandra is "space inefficient" compared to MySQL?
Date Tue, 25 May 2010 05:46:08 GMT
Hi all,
Am running "Cassandra" on Windows XP (single node) machine.
I have made insertion of about "10 million" records into "Cassandra" , and
it took around 90 minutes to insert and 8GB of space.
For the same number of records MySQL will take "3 GB" space.

Could you please tell me why?
And please Give me the complete documentation for running Thrift API with
Java to talk to Cassandra in "Red Hat Linux".
