- Cassandra is a highly scalable, eventually consistent, distributed, structured key-value
store. Cassandra brings together the distributed systems technologies from [[http://web.archive.org/web/20120221222718/http://s3.amazonaws.com/AllThingsDistributed/sosp/amazon-dynamo-sosp2007.pdf|Dynamo]]
and the data model from Google's [[http://research.google.com/archive/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.
