If you really mean millions of storage rows, this is just about the worst
case for Cassandra. The problem you're having is probably that you
shouldn't try to do this in Cassandra.

Your timeouts are either from the read actually taking longer than the
timeout or from the reads provoking heap pressure and resulting GC.
