Subject Re: Using Cassandra for storing large objects
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2011 08:35:14 GMT
Millions of rows/items is no problem, megabytes per item is doable. Generally people have talked
about chunking blobs and storing them across multiple columns. 

See 
http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/LargeDataSetConsiderations
http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/CassandraLimitations

Hope that helps.
