Subject Re: cassandra as session store
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2011 17:50:15 GMT
We're using servlets which also support sessions, but you have to rely
on the servlet container to offer any sort of distributed session
handling and this produces scalability issues past a certain point.
Same thing for persistent sessions (survive restart). We also want a
mechanism that can operate for multiple types of clients, not
necessarily all the same type of web server.

One Session Management System to rule them all,
One Session Management System to find them,
One Session Management System to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them.
