Subject meaning of eventual consistency in Cassandra ?
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 12:21:24 GMT
What is the meaning of eventual consistency in Cassandra when nodes in
a single cluster do not mantain the copies of same data but rather
data is distributed among nodes. Since a single peice of data is
recorded at a single place(node),Why wouldn't Cassandra return the
recent value from that single place of record? How do multiple copies
arise in this situation ? Where are the replicas in Cassandra cluster
?

Thanks
