I agree with Jeff. I believe the _best_ part of Cassandra exists in its networking , replication , and fault tolerance. The storage engine is as dumb as disk or memory. If we can make it fast by replacing it , great. Maybe even optimize it in JVM.
With new paradigms like blockchain entering into the mainstream - eventually I see bridges between Cassandra and blockchain for organizations that need speed as well as fault tolerance for the “ledger”. -- Rahul Singh rahul.si...@anant.us Anant Corporation On Mar 12, 2018, 7:59 PM -0400, Jeff Jirsa <jji...@gmail.com>, wrote: > > > > On Mon, Mar 12, 2018 at 3:58 PM, Carl Mueller > > <carl.muel...@smartthings.com> wrote: > > > Rocksandra can expand out it's non-java footprint without rearchitecting > > > the java codebase.
