Subject Re: Storing files in Cassandra with Spring Data / Astyanax
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2014 07:15:49 GMT

We are building an application where we install it on-premise, usually
there is no internet connection at all there. As I am using Cassandra for
storing everything else in the application, it would be very convenient to
also use Cassandra for those files so I don't have to set up 2 distributed
systems for each installation we do.

Is there documentation somewhere on how to integrate/get started with
Astyanax with Spring Data Cassandra ?
