Subject Re: is there a "no disk storage" mode ?

Hi Dominique,

I don't think there is a way to run cassandra without disk storage. But 
running it embedded can be very useful for unit testing. I'm using 
cassandra-unit ( to 
integrate it in my tests. You don't need to configure any file paths; it 
works fine out of the box.

I've set it up to drop and recreate my keyspace before each test case, 
and even then it performs quite good.

Good luck,
