oh yeah, one more BIG one.....in memory writes with asynch write-behind to disk like cassandra does for speed.

So if you have atomic locking, it writes to the primary node(memory) and some other node(memory) and returns with success to the client.  asynch then writes to disk later.  This prove to be very fast and 2 machines make it pretty reliable and of course it is asynchronously writing to that third or fourth machine depending on replication factor.

later,
Dean

Does it cause any impact on reads and writes while re-balance is in
progress? How is it handled on live cluster?
