Dear Brendan,

I would really be interested by your findings too. I need a system to store various documents, I am thinking of Cassandra (that I am already using) or using a second type of database or any other system. Maybe like dan suggested, using mogilefs.

Thank you,

That's not what document-oriented means! (har har)

I don't know all the details of your case, but with serving static files I suspect you could do ok with something that has a much smaller memory/cpu footprint as you won't have as great of write throughput / read latency concerns.  I've used mogilefs for this before.
