Cassandra doesn't do that automatically - it can guarantee consistency on read or write via
ConsistencyLevel on each query, and it can run active (AntiEntropy) repairs. But active repairs
must be scheduled (by human or cron or by third party script like,
and to be pedantic, repair only fixes consistency issue, there's some work to be done to properly
address/support fixing corrupted replicas (for example, repair COULD send a bit flip from
one node to all of the others)
