Subject How to use Cassandra on-node storage engine only?
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2013 13:47:56 GMT
   I am developing an application for data storage. All the replication,
routing and data retrieving types of business are handled in my
application. Up to now, the data is stored in memory. Now, I want to use
Cassandra storage engine to flush data from memory into hard drive. I am
not sure if that is a correct approach.

My question: Can I use the Cassandra data storage engine only? I do not
want to use Cassandra as a whole standalone product (In this case, I should
run one independent Cassandra per node and my application act as if it is
client of Cassandra. This idea will put a lot of burden on node since it
puts unnecessary levels between my application and storage engine).

I have my own replication, ring and routing code. I only need the on-node
storage facilities of Cassandra. I want to embed cassandra in my
application as a library.
