Subject [Cassandra Wiki] Update of "FrontPage" by tuxracer69
Date Sat, 14 Nov 2009 15:48:22 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

The "FrontPage" page has been changed by tuxracer69.
http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/FrontPage?action=diff&rev1=24&rev2=25

--------------------------------------------------

  
  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.
  
- Cassandra was open sourced by Facebook in 2008, where it was designed by Avinash Lakshman
(one of the authors of Amazon's Dynamo) and Prashant Malik ( Facebook Engineer ). In a lot
of ways you can think of Cassandra as Dynamo 2.0 or a marriage of Dynamo and BigTable.  Cassandra
is in production use at Facebook but is still under heavy development.
