Cassandra Range Query Made Simple
In Cassandra, rows are hash partitioned by default. If you want to data sorted by some attribute, column name sorting feature of Cassandra is usually exploited. If you look at the Cassandra slice range API, you will find that you can specify only the range start, range end and an upper limit on the number of columns fetched.
However in many applications the need is to paginate through the data i.e each call should fetch a predetermined number of items.
