The result of updatestatebykey is a dstream that emits the entire state every batch - as an
RDD - nothing special about it.

It easy to join / cogroup with another RDD if you have the correct keys in both.
You could load this one when the job starts and/or have it update with updatestatebykey as
well, based on streaming updates from cassandra.
