Subject Astyanax: A New Cassandra Client.
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2012 01:40:52 GMT
*What is Astyanax?*
Astyanax is a Java Cassandra client. It borrows many concepts from Hector
but diverges in the connection pool implementation as well as the client
API. One of the main design considerations was to provide a clean
abstraction between the connection pool and Cassandra API so that each may
be customized and improved separately. Astyanax provides a fluent style API
which guides the caller to narrow the query from key to column as well as
providing queries for more complex use cases that we have encountered. The
operational benefits of Astyanax over Hector include lower latency, reduced
latency variance, and better error handling.
