Thanks for the information Drew and Jonathan.
Is there any difference in performance while using Pig compared to MapReduce directly on data store ?
I will do the experiments with both of them though in some time.

The cassandra column family input format will go over a an entire
column family sending a slice of a row into a mapper at a time. From
there there's a lot you can do. As far as how you aggregate data
together, I'd suggest experimenting with the latest version of Pig
which thankfully supports the new input format. It gives you a
SQL'esque syntax for manipulating the data and is probably the easiest
way to experiment.
