Subject Latest Hector release (0.7.0-26) includes experimental virtual keyspace support
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 18:11:05 GMT
The latest version of the Hector Java client has experimental support for a
"virtual keyspaces" feature that transparently adds and removes a prefix to
all row keys sent between Hector and Cassandra.  There's a small write up of
it here:

https://github.com/rantav/hector/wiki/Virtual-Keyspaces

The idea is to use a "Shared Keyspace, Shared Column Families" variation of
the common "Shared Database, Shared Schema" technique for multi-tenancy.
Certainly not applicable for all situations, but makes it very simple to
implement multi-tenancy in the application tier.

Hector can be found at https://github.com/rantav/hector/
