Subject [Cassandra Wiki] Update of "CLI Design" by wolfeidau
Date Sat, 20 Feb 2010 22:46:16 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cassandra Wiki" for change notification.

The "CLI Design" page has been changed by wolfeidau.


  Cassandra is a distributed database project which was contributed to Apache by Facebook
and is now maintained by contributors from a range of companies and some individual contributors.
Over the last six or so months there has been increasing interest in distributed databases
on the back of the NoSQL movement started by some guy from Rackspace. This in addition to
well attended talks from key contributors has led to quite a lot of people trying out Cassandra
for the first time. Some of these new users have observered that Cassandra although damn cool
looking is very hard to get started with, this is for a few reasons:
   * Modeling data in Cassandra is very different from the typical RDBMS, which people are
used to using.
-  * The tools and initial user experiance not awfully friendly
+  * The tools provided need some work to address error management and overall ease of use.
   * Most of the interest comes from segments of the Python, Ruby communities which are not
entirely familiar with how to manage java based services.
   * Monitoring of statistics requires an understanding of JMX and is difficult to do outside
of the Java Virtual Machine.
