Forget. The text value can be upto 2GB in size, but in practice it will be less.

Hello Techy Teck,

Couldn't find any evidence on the datastax website but found this http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/CassandraLimitations

which I believe is correct.


Thanks

We are using CQL table like this -

CREATE TABLE testing (
  description text,
  last_modified_date timeuuid,
  employee_id text,
  value text,
  PRIMARY KEY (employee_name, last_modified_date)
)


We have made description as text in the above table. I am thinking is there any limitations on text data type in CQL such as it can only have certain number of bytes and after that it will truncate?

Any other limitations that I should be knowing? Should I use blob there?
