Each storage system has its own
purpose. While Cassandra would be good for metadata, depending on
the size of objects Cassandra could be not the best fit. You need
something more like Amazon S3 for blob storage. Try Ceph RADOS or
OpenStack Object Store which both provide S3 compatible API.

Hi – Can someone suggest
the optimal way to store files / images ? We are planning to
use cassandra for meta-data for these files. HDFS is not
good for small file size .. can we
look at something else ?
