Subject Self-healing data integrity?
Date Sat, 09 Sep 2017 08:07:28 GMT

I am searching for a big data storage solution for the Imixs-Workflow 
project. I started with Hadoop until I became aware of the 
'small-file-problem'. So I am considering using Cassandra now.

But Hadoop has one important feature for me. The replicator continuously 
examines whether data blocks are consistent across all datanodes. This 
will detect disk errors and automatically move data from defective 
blocks to working blocks. I think this is called 'self-healing mechanism'.

Is there a similar feature in Cassandra too?

Thanks for help
