That would depend on how much data is generated per day. If it can still fit
in a row, the solution wold be to to just have rows keyed by date, like
20110326. This way you don't have to move data inside the cluster, the
selection logic will be in the client.

Even if the data is too large to be put in a row for single day, you  can
store all IDs of objects in this fashion, that's usually practical (plus you
can make use of column names for additional indexing capability). Then, you
have to have a separate (and potentially very large table) which contained
the actual data. Essentially, one table would serve as an index to the
other, which is the data store. I have a working application that's
structured like that and it works OK.
