Well, astyanax I know can simulate streaming into cassandra and disperses the file to multiple
rows in the cluster so you could check that out.

Out of curiosity, why is HDFS not good for a small file size?  For reading, it should be the
bomb with RF=3 since you can read from multiple nodes and such.  Writes might be a little
slower but still shouldn't be too bad.

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 ?
