Subject Cassandra blob vs base64 text
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2017 12:38:52 GMT
We currently have some cases where we store base64 as a text field instead
of a blob (running version 2.0.17).
I would like to move these to blob but wondering what benefits and
optimizations there are? The possible ones I can think of is (but there's
probably more):

* blob is stored as off heap ByteBuffers?
* blob won't be decompressed server side?

Are there any other reasons to switch to blobs? Or are we not going to see
any difference?
