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”.
