limited compared to those of relational databases, so you'll still be
limited in terms of the types of queries you can execute if you care about
the performance impacts on Cassandra.

There are also several third-party ODBC drivers for Cassandra that
translate the ODBC interface to something that is Cassandra-compatible,
