Subject Re: Having secondary indices limited to analytics dc
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2016 19:26:12 GMT
Can it be possible with change log feature implemented in CASSANDRA-8844
<>?  i.e. to have two
clusters (With different schema definitions for secondary indices) and
segregating analytics workload on the other cluster with CDC log shipper
enabled on parent DC which is taking care of transactional workload?
