New Snappy Compression Codec built on Google Snappy is now used internally for automatic CassandraFS block compression.
Automap Cassandra Column Families to Hive Tables in the Brisk Hive Metastore.
Add a second HDFS layer in CassandraFS for long-term data storage. This is needed because the blocks column family in CFS requires frequent compactions – Hadoop uses it during MapReduce processing to store small files and temporary data. Compaction cleans this temporary data up after it is not needed anymore. Now there is the cfs:/// and cfs-archive:/// endpoints within CFS. The blocks column family in cfs-archive:/// has compaction disabled to improve performance for static data stored in CFS.
