Subject Re: cassandra's performance?

Cassandra is not designed to work memory-only.  It's designed designed
to use disk for durability and to accommodate using large sets of
data, letting the OS use memory as a huge cache for that.  For typical
data use patterns (where a relatively small amount is "hot") this will
be a much better use of hardware than memory-only.
