Subject Re: Storing videos in cassandra
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2016 18:56:26 GMT
Some time ago, I stumbled across this:
https://github.com/chrislusf/seaweedfs
It is an open source implementation of Facebooks Haystack design. Have no
experience yet but we will evaluate it as a blob-store to replace our
Mogile-FS installation which stores over one billion images. From my point
of view it looks very promising and probably much more resource-friendly
for this use case.

Maybe that helps ...
