QUORUM. Yes, we do deletes.

Every 2 days.

It works as we expect, it has some impact on performance, but it takes a long time. We used
to run daily repairs, but they started overlapping. The reason for more frequent repairs is
that we do a lot of deletes so we lowered the gc_grace_period otherwise the dataset would
grow too large.
