- What is this wiki about?
+ Cassandra is a highly scalable, eventually consistent, distributed, structured key-value
store. Cassandra brings together the distributed systems technologies from [http://s3.amazonaws.com/AllThingsDistributed/sosp/amazon-dynamo-sosp2007.pdf
Dynamo] and the data model from Google's [http://labs.google.com/papers/bigtable-osdi06.pdf
BigTable]. Like Dynamo, Cassandra is [http://www.allthingsdistributed.com/2008/12/eventually_consistent.html
eventually consistent]. Like !BigTable, Cassandra provides a !ColumnFamily-based data model
richer than typical key/value systems.
  
+ This is a wiki, and with the exception of a few immutable pages, anyone
+ can edit it. Try SyntaxReference if you need help on wiki markup, and
+ FindPage or SiteNavigation to search for existing pages before creating a
+ new one. If you aren't sure where to begin, checkout RecentChanges to see
+ what others have been working on, or RandomPage if you are feeling lucky.
