The ColumnFamily data model and wide-row support provides the ability to store and access data efficiently in a de-normalized state. Recent enhancements for CQL's spare tables and built-in indexing provide the capability to store data in a manner similar to that of relational databases. For many use cases hybrid approaches are needed, because complete de-normalization is appropriate for some access patterns whereas more structured data is appropriate for others. At times a single logical event becomes multiple insertions across multiple column families. Likewise a user request might require a several reads across different column families. This talk describes some of these scenarios and demonstrates how advanced operations such multiple step procedures, filtering, intersection, and paging can be implemented client side or server side with the help of the IntraVert plugin.
