Subject Re: Please advise -- 750MB object possible?

Chunking is a good idea, but you'll have to do it yourself. A few of the
columns in our application got quite large (maybe ~150MB) and the failure
mode was RPC timeout exceptions. Nodes couldn't always move that much data
across our data center interconnect in the default 10 seconds. With enough
heap and a faster network you could probably get by without chunking, but
it's not ideal.
