If you don't have a very large dataset and you're not pressed for time,
just iterating over your existing data with a normal mysql client and
inserting into Cassandra with a normal Cassandra client is the easiest
option.  Using multiple threads or processes can make this pretty quick.

For larger datasets, loading through a map/reduce job is typical.
