About inserts and updates
A brief description and illustration about insert and update operations.
Insert and update operations are identical. As inserts/updates come in, Cassandra does not overwrite the rows in place, but instead groups inserts/updates in the memtable.
Any number of columns may be inserted/updated at the same time. When inserting or updating columns in a table, the client application identifies which column records to change.
