  = Cassandra Wiki =
  Cassandra is a highly scalable, eventually consistent, distributed, structured key-value
store. Cassandra brings together the distributed systems technologies from [
Dynamo] and the data model from Google's [
BigTable]. Like Dynamo, Cassandra is [
eventually consistent]. Like !BigTable, Cassandra provides a !ColumnFamily-based data model
richer than typical key/value systems.
+ Cassandra was open sourced by Facebook in 2008, where it was designed by one of the authors
of Amazon's Dynamo. In a lot of ways you can think of Cassandra as Dynamo 2.0.  Cassandra
is in production use at Facebook but is still under heavy development.
  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
