     <h2>Welcome to Apache Cassandra</h2>
     <p>
-    The Apache Cassandra Project develops a highly scalable second-generation distributed
database,
-    bringing together <a href="http://www.allthingsdistributed.com/2007/10/amazons_dynamo.html">
-    Dynamo's</a> fully distributed design and
-    <a href="http://labs.google.com/papers/bigtable.html">Bigtable's</a> ColumnFamily-based
data
-    model.
+    The Apache Cassandra database is the right choice when you need scalability and high
availability without compromising performance. <a href="http://techblog.netflix.com/2011/11/benchmarking-cassandra-scalability-on.html">Linear
scalability</a> and proven fault-tolerance on commodity hardware or cloud infrastructure
make it the perfect platform for mission-critical data. Cassandra's support for replicating
across multiple datacenters is best-in-class, providing lower latency for your users and the
peace of mind of knowing that you can survive regional outages.
