Plenty of comments in this thread already, and I agree with those saying
"it depends". From my experience, a cluster with 18 spindles total
could not match the performance and throughput of our primary
Oracle server which had 108 spindles. After we upgraded to SSD,
things have definitely changed for the better, for Cassandra.

Another thing is that if you plan to implement "composite indexes" by
catenating column values into additional columns, that would constitute
a "write" hence you'll need CPU. So watch out.
