Subject Cassandra blob storage
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2014 17:41:16 GMT
I have been spending some time looking into whether large files(>100mb) can
be stores in Cassandra. As per Cassandra faq:

*"Currently Cassandra isn't optimized specifically for large file or BLOB
storage. However, files of around 64Mb and smaller can be easily stored in
the database without splitting them into smaller chunks. This is primarily
due to the fact that Cassandra's public API is based on Thrift, which
offers no streaming abilities; any value written or fetched has to fit in
to memory."*

Does the above statement still hold? Thrift supports framed data transport,
does that change the above statement. If not, why does casssandra not adopt
the Thrift framed data transfer support?
