I am only saying something obvious: if you don't have sufficient
resources to handle the demand, you should reduce demand, increase
resources, or expect errors.  Doing lots of writes without much heap
space is such a situation (whether or not it is happening in this
instance), but there are many others.  This constraint it not specific
to Cassandra.  Hence, there is no free lunch.
