No, this is a really really bad idea and C* was not designed for this, in fact, it was designed
so you don't need to have a large expensive SAN.

Don't be tempted by the shiny expensive SAN. :)

If money is no object instead throw SSD's in your nodes and run 10G between racks

Subject: Cassandra with SAN

Hi - Is it a good idea to use Cassandra with SAN ?  Say a SAN which provides me 8 Petabytes
of storage. Would I not be I/O bound irrespective of the no of Cassandra machines and scaling
by adding
machines won't help ?

Thanks
Kanwar
