Subject Re: Is there anyone who implemented time range partitions with column families?

Cem, yes, you can do this with C*, though you have to handle the logic
yourself (other libraries might do this for you, seen the dev of playORM
discuss some things which might be similar).  We use Astyanax
and programmatically create CFs based on a time period of our choosing that
makes sense for our system, programmatically drop CFs if/when they are
outside a certain time period (rather than using C*'s TTL), and write data
to the different CFs as needed.
