Application would send request to one of the node(called as coordinating
node) & this coordinating node is aware of where your result
lies(considering you have modelled your DB correctly, it should not result
in scatter& gather kind of stuff) and thus delegate the query to respective
node, so it does follow client server architecture & your assumption is
As per my knowledge , generally application should be unaware where your
result lies & must not be tied to a specific node because it would have
bigger implications when stuffs like re-balancing would occur. So, your
application should be unaware where your data lies (in which node I meant),
but obviously keeping application in same region as that of cassandra
cluster would make sense, can't comment much on cloud deployment.
