Subject Re: Some questions about Zookeeper and how it connects to NoSQL database.

Your question would likely be better suited in the Cassandra mailing list.

In a few words: you can, in a way, consider ZooKeeper as a database, as it
persists data. But the features used are mostly the synchronisation
services to manage the cluster state. So the question to your first
question is 'no', so the issue mentioned in the second does not occur in

You can have a look at the Google paper on Big Table, it explains its role
in a typical BigTable implementation.
