Subject Re: cassandra as session store
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2011 20:24:03 GMT
What I'm still unclear about, and where I think this is suitable, is
Cassandra being used as a data warehouse for current and past sessions tied
to a user.  Yes, other things are great for session management, but I want
to provide near real time session information to my users ... quick and
simple and i want to use cassandra ... surely i can't be that bad for
thinking this is a good idea?
