Hi Akash,
There are a lot of interesting articles written around this topic.


You shouldn't need to worry about hotspots if you select the partition key carefully and your
cluster is configured properly. Please go through the links and if you have more clarification,
please feel free to ask more questions here.

I have a data model where the partition key for a lot of tables is based on time 
(year, month, day, hour)
Would this create a hotspot in my cluster, given all the writes/reads would go to the same
node for a given hour? Or does the cassandra storage engine also takes into account the table
info like table name, when distributing the data?
If the above model would be a problem, what's the suggested way to solve this? Add tablename
to partition key?
