The best way would be to chunk your binary blobs into 1/2MB chunks.

You could store

Key (md5 of entire blob) => part1, part2, part3 etc

BytesType Validation

Then if you want the entire image just grab the key (md5)..obviously you'll need a index somewhere
with a filename => md5

Subject: Storage question

Hi – Can someone suggest the optimal way to store files / images ? We are planning to use
cassandra for meta-data for these files.  HDFS is not good for small file size .. can we
look at something else ?
