You can even define how much increment you want. But let me just warn you, as far my knowledge,
it has consistency issues.

create column family MyCounterColumnFamily with default_validation_class=CounterColumnType
and key_validation_class=UTF8Type and comparator=UTF8Type;

There you go! Keys must be utf8, as well as the column names. Of course you can change those
