Subject Re: Using Cassandra to store files
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 17:47:24 GMT

Even when storage is in NFS, Cassandra can still be quite useful as a file
catalog. Your physical storage can change, move etc. Therefore, it's a good
idea to provide mapping of logical names to physical store points (which in
fact can be many). This is a standard technique used in mass storage.
