Subject Re: 1000's of column families
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2012 13:28:01 GMT
Thanks for the idea but…(but please keep thinking on it)...

100% what we don't want since partitioned data resides on the same node.
I want to map/reduce the column families and leverage the parallel disks

:( :(

I am sure others would want to do the same…..We almost need a feature of
virtual Column Families and column family should really not be column
family but should be called ReplicationGroup or something where
replication is configured for all CF's in that group.

ANYONE have any other ideas???
